 From http://www.lancopera.org

 

The Lancaster Opera House is a reminder of an early American tradition. In previous centuries, it was not unusual to combine a music hall with a town’s main governmental building. These multi-functional halls were often called “Opera Houses”, whether or not opera was, in fact, performed. The Lancaster Opera House, designed by George J. Metzger, is one of only a few such Town Hall Opera Houses left in the country.

3399.  3rd stop and 2nd find after my event at Buffalo Brew Pub.  Found quickly and there was definitely not concern of muggles or "fat ladies" at this late hour (11:30 PM or so).

Thanks and Happy Trails!

Out and about grabbing a few while the sun is shinning.

1 17 June 2012 Rayman Found it

Yes I was quite surprised to find out we were caching before golfing instead of the other way around. I too have never been in the opera house, and likely never will since I'm not very cultured. Surprised And yes, my GPS was taking forever to get a signal. But it would be unsafe to drive and operate it at the same time so that's my excuse. I walked right past the BIT at first but quickly turned around and spotted it. TFTC.

Found with Rayman relatively early on a Sunday Morning (about 9:30 or so), on the way to play golf in Attica. I have never been inside the Opera House, but it's a very interesting looking building, which I have seen many times. Found it I believe before Rayman's Delorme GPSr even booted up. Thank you for your BITcaching efforts. Not hugely popular, but hey, more popular than Munzees, apparently. Tongue out

Like most Villages, Corfu had an Opera House too. Just like Lancaster Corfu's had many uses. Village Office , Fire Station, Grocery Store, Hardware Store, Dollar Store and now much to my chagrin a Tattoo Parlor. Buit hey its a business and times change dont they?
Thanks for bringing me here SF7
