Stripping away the layers at the Opera House!- Before and after.

Another exciting phase of Hillsboro’s Opera house Brewing Company renovation went off tonight.  The Marcolini’s, and The Schmidts, (co-owners of the brewery) with help with some friends peeled back the old green paneling that covered the old opera house facade.  The nearly finished recessed entrance, is part of a plan to restore the old foyer to it’s original layout, including re-building the old staircase, double height entrance and re-opening the front windows to their original size. Pretty dang cool.

The beautiful carved limestone “Oddfellows Hall” sign had been heavily damaged, but Tony plans to retain or repair it sign to show the history of the building.
