Built in 1883, the Town Hall has been a performing arts theater, town offices, a restaurant, a home for the Knights of Columbus, and a movie house.

It was recently purchased by the Middlebury Community Players, a local theater group, for $250,000, which the group raised through three years of fundraising. Ultimately, the group will need to raise a total of $3.8 million to reopen the theater as planned.

For now, the theater has been awarded a $50,000 grant to reopen the theater this summer. When fundraising is complete, the Players will gut and renovate the theater. The new theater will seat 325 patrons and is expected to reopen in 2003.

I was recently passing through on a cycling trip. The address listed as 10 Merchants Row is wrong as there’s already a 10 in the block of buildings down the street by the coffeehouse and bicycle shop.

There was a huge banner hanging in town about the theatre’s reopening and town celebration and it was mentioned in many newspapers I picked up during my 10-day trip.
