• Newberry Opera House - Newberry, South Carolina

      Roadtrip Attraction
      During most of its history since its construction in the 1880s, this striking French Gothic structure has been the center of local artistic and/or civic activity. It was designed to house the fire department, city offices, a jail, and of course a theater that hosted touring performances as well as community events. Later, it served as a movie theater, beginning with the silents, until it was closed for a few years in the Fifties. Now it's once again a seat of city government and a thriving entertainment venue that sometimes attracts big name artists to perform.
