There’s a lot of passion for this very important place. This beloved, historic 24,000-sq.-ft. building was built in 1914 by the Homestake Gold Mine for their workers and families. It was given to the City of Lead in 1972. Unfortunately, the theater was nearly destroyed by fire in 1984.
The Historic Homestake Opera House Society, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, was founded in 1998, and is dedicated to the restoration, use and preservation for future generations of the Opera House based upon the steadfast belief that this once-thriving creative center is one cornerstone for the preservation, renewal and development of the Lead community.
This organization is backed by our loyal members, more than 300 volunteers, a hard-working board of directors, community theatre performers, artists, musicians, and singers. The organization has owned the building since 2005, and ongoing work and live performing arts events (concerts, dance, musicals, community theatre) and weddings are hosted all year-round.
Thank you for your interest, your support, and for sharing our story.
