Bear River Opera House
Bear River, Utah

The LDS Ward in Bear River City built an opera house and amusement hall in 1904 at a cost of $6,000.  On 15 February 1913, flames from an open stove door caught scenery on fire.   The town had no water works and a bucket brigade was ineffectual.  The theater burned to the ground, leaving only the rock foundation.
