Bent's Opera House


In 1865, Bent's Opera House opened to the public with the first significant event being PT Barnum of Barnum's Museum in New York City who spoke on the “Art of Making Money.” In the 19th century, Bent's hosted performances with notable actors, graduations, orators and election night coverage. In 2012, NYS Preservation League deemed Bent's as one of "Seven to Save". In 2021, Bent's restoration was completed and opened with a restaurant, Harvest, on the 1st floor, boutique hotel on the 2nd floor and event center on the 3rd floor in the original opera house space.
