Rawlins Opera House Turns 100 Years Old
RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) — The Rawlins Opera House turns 100 years old this year.
A 100th anniversary celebration is planned this Saturday. It will feature a choir performance.
The opera house was built in 1912, and over the years its uses changed.
The Rawlins Daily Times reports it is now home to several different businesses, including the Rawlins Music Academy.
Building co-owner Leo Chapman says the opera house was built with thick slabs of concrete and he hopes to see it last another 100 years.
