Bent’s Opera House
A restorative effort has begun to revive historic Bent’s Opera House in Medina, NY…
Bent’s Opera House is one of the oldest surviving theaters in the entire nation, having been built at the height of the U.S. Civil War. From 1865 to the early 1920‘s it was the cultural center of the Medina area and is back on its way to becoming a regional destination once again. Rich in history and an architectural gem in Medina Sandstone, Bent’s Opera House is one of WNY’s premier preservation projects.
