Designed by Chicago architect Oscar Cobb in 1879, the Keokuk Opera House was constructed on N. 6th Street at Blondeau Street. It was built at a cost of $30,000 and was the largest theater in Keokuk at that time, with 1,064 seats. It was host to legitimate theater, musicals, and minstrel shows, and in its later years, to vaudeville and motion pictures. The Opera House was acquired by the Baker-Dodge Theater Company on January 12, 1914, and renamed the Grand Theater. The Grand Theater was destroyed by a blaze in December 7, 1923.
It was rebuilt and reopened on January 27, 1925, constructed on the foundation of the previous theater, and the ‘new’ Grand Theatre is still in operation to this day.
