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.

Roberts' Hall was built by Ephraim Roberts as a crockery factory. When the venture was unsuccessful, the building was converted into an amusement hall. Music for dances was provided by violin, guitar, cornet, or organ. The hall was also used for showing motion pictures and other events.[1]
