Walton Opera House (Walton, Ky.)


Walton Opera House (Walton, Ky.)
Near the turn of the century, small towns frequently boasted local opera houses, featuring plays, circuses, orators, and traveling shows that offered entertainment for residents.
The Opera House was immensely popular, converting to a movie house when silent movies debuted. It suffered a decline after the boom of the 1920's, and was used as a warehouse for many years before becoming the Model Food Store. The store was torn down in 1976.
The Walton Opera House Building was located near the railroad tracks and close to the present-day Walton Branch of the Boone County Public Library.
