Woodward Opera House
Mount Vernon, Oh
Lepi Enterprises was contracted by a private board to remove the Lead Based Paint from the Woodward Opera House. Research has shown that the Woodward is America's Oldest Authentic 19th Century Theater still standing (there are no original pre-19th century theaters in America). Updated historical investigation has moved the first event back to at least December 8-10, 1851, which was a lecture on electricity by a Dr. Boynton.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places on October 10, 1975, the Woodward Opera House is situated in the heart of Mount Vernon's Central Business District. This national landmark invites you to step back in time to the mid-1800s and experience history! While viewing the Woodward, imagine what it must have been like to perform here. Take in the 19th century architecture, admire the original paintings still hanging on the walls, and if you listen quietly, you may hear a fiddle or banjo picking out a familiar tune.
