This former village hall was designed in 1891 by well-known regional architect Enoch Curtis in what he termed Queen Anne eclectic style. Most village halls from that era contained a performance space, or opera house, and this was no exception. The Fredonia Opera House attracted many of the best late 19th-century and early 20th-century entertainers. In the 1920s, it was converted to a movie house. However, by the 1980s, it had closed and fallen in disrepair and was facing demolition. Fortunately, the Fredonia Preservation Society stepped in and saved it from the wrecker's ball. It was restored to its former grandeur and now is a venue for family-oriented entertainment, including concerts, films, plays and professional theater. - Christine A. Smyczynski
