The Historic Masonic Theatre is an architectural treasure. A three-story, Beaux Arts brick building with pilastered facade, a cove ceiling lobby and original performance hall with stage and balcony, the historic theatre will be transformed into a performing arts, entertainment, education, and community facility.
Once known as The Mason Hall and Opera House, the building was constructed in 1905 and throughout its history hosted western movie icons like Lash LaRue, who rode his horse down the theatre aisle, and Roy Rogers, who once appeared with his wonder horse Trigger.
Other stars made the Masonic Theatre a part of their performance legacy. Performers included Gene Autry, Tex Ritter, Cowboy Bob Steele, and Hopalong Cassidy, as well as legends Burl Ives, the Drifters, and the world famous Count Basie Orchestra.
