Opera House

On August 20, 1878, 25 years after Sandwich first became a town, a contract was signed for construction of the Sandwich City Hall and Opera House.  An allotment of $10,000 was given for the project, with the stipulation that it must be completed by the end of the year.  The building was finished on time, but there was a cost overrun of $2,000. After much time, money and energy by volunteers to restore and renovate the City Hall and Opera House, a grand re-opening was held on  April 12, 1986.  Once again the building functions as a community oriented facility, bringing community theatre, lectures, recitals, style shows, weddings and a wide variety of outstanding performers, ranging from country to classical, to its stage.
