The Grand Opera House’s opening night was February 19, 1895, with the play “Lost Paradise”. The architect was William Waters, whose trademark sunbursts and cross arrows can be found on the buildings west and south side. He also designed the Grand Opera House in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
The building was saved in late-1990’s by the Friends of the Grand and Rogers Cinema. Rogers Cinema purchased the building and converted it into a four-plex. They also updated the sound and projection systems.
The exterior of the building has been restored to its original appearance.
