Marion, Part 2 - Old Town Hall And Opera House | Palmetto Places


Artist in residence Bill Nelson performs a one man act at the Old Town Hall and Opera House. Marion County’s Old Town Hall and Opera House was completed in 1892, and served multiple purposes: police station, jail, fire department, a city supervised meat market, and held horse stables. The auditorium was used for stage productions, political meetings, and graduation exercises.

Today, the auditorium and theater has been restored to its original classic revival design.
