Piper's Opera House Rating: None

Built in 1863 by Thomas Maguire, Piper?s Opera House?s old name was actually Maguire Opera House. It was acquired by John Piper, one of those who migrated to Virginia City when the boomtown started to make news, being a very profitable, developing area.

However, the Piper?s Opera House that people know today is only the third version of what was originally built. The first two burnt to the ground, and the one present today is built through the generosity of the people of Virginia City in 1885.

Piper?s Opera House has contributed so much to Virginia City?s history. It is now managed by the Piper?s Opera House Historic Programs. Renovations were started in 1997 to what can be seen today.
