The North Side Project is now complete, with new clapboards and trim and flashing and sheathing we hope the elements will, finally, stay outside the Opera House. We are still raising funds to support the work done, and the work that needs to be done on the other three sides of the building. Our 1894 Society recognizes individuals and businesses who are able to make a gift of $1894 or more for the building. As a special thank you to these donors, we have a limited number of handmade boxes, made from the original Opera House clapboards, which we are happily bestowing upon our newest 1894 Society members. These small boxes, suitable for keeping Opera tickets in, or other treasures, were hand crafted by Chip Schwehm. If interested in becoming a member of the 1894 Society, please contact Opera House World Headquarters at 207-633-6855. Thanks to all for your support of this grand old community gathering place.
