Historical Marker #236

Located at Piper's Opera House in Virginia City, Nevada.

Piper's Opera House

This building, the most significant vintage theatre in the West, was erected by John Piper in 1885. Third in a succession of theatres which he operated on the Comstock, Piper's Opera House, with its original scenery, raked stage, and elegant proscenium boxes, is a remarkable survivor of a colorful era in American theatrical history. Many popular nineteenth century touring stars and concert artists appeared here.

Notes on this marker:

Last I heard they're restoring Piper's, but that may be old information.
