Redmond Opera House
Redmond, Utah
 
Status:
Demolished 
Open:
1880s  
Closed:
14 December 1948  
 

The Redmond Opera House was built by Julius Christensen in the 1880s, but it's original function is unknown.  It served as a store for about ten years before being converted into a recreation center about 1910 to 1920.[1]

On Tuesday afternoon, 14 December 1948, the janitor started a fire in the basement furnace to prepare the building for a basketball practice and a ward drama group.   A fire was discovered about 7 p.m.  The Salina volunteer fire department had the blaze under control within an hour and a half.   The Richfield fire department also responded, but turned back in Salina after hearing they were not needed.   The interior of the theater was gutted and the hand-made brick was weakened by the heat.  The loss was estimated at more than $10,000.
