Businessman Dr. Ebenezer Woodward founded the opera house in the mid-1800s. He wanted the community to have a performing-arts venue that was not dependent on the theater's profits. It is believed that the venue's first event was a lecture by Dr. Boyton in early December 1851. This would be the start of a long history of theatrical performances, concerts, and more, which contributed to the local area's cultural life.
