Homestake Opera House

Lead, SD View map


Built by Phoebe Hearst, owner of the Homestake Gold Mine in 1914,
and with the vision of mine superintendent Thomas Grier,
this performing arts venue and recreation center on Lead's Main Street
boasted a library, bowling alley, billiards hall, social hall, heated indoor swimming pool,
including an exquisite theater with 1,000 seats.
The building survived a devastating fire in 1984,
but now features 40-50 shows annually,
including theatre, concerts, educational presentations, private and group tours, and community events
while the theater makes progress in restoration as funding allows.
The theater seats 500, and when completed restored will seat 780.
Please visit and see the historical Interpretive Exhibit upstairs with a new Cinema Room,
and make sure you take our tour and see the beautifully completed interior walls restored in the theater!
