—1881 · J. C. & J. N. Mittelberger —The railroad brought touring companies including vaudeville shows, to the opera houses of America. The 1902 production of Uncle Tom's Cabin required two sixty-five foot special cars for the lavish sets and costumes. Tickets were twenty-five, thirty-five, or fifty cents each. The 350-seat opera house opened in 1881 and closed in 1929 when vaudeville had been upstaged by motion picture.
