The LDS Church opened the Fountain Green Theatre and Dance Hall in 1918 and for decades it was the heart of the community. In 1944 the building was sold to Ivin Rasmussen, who continued to operate the recreation center until 1950, when television changed the way people spent their evenings. Rasmussen converted the dance hall into a general store, but the building sat vacant for 30 years after the store closed in 1976. His descendants donated the building to the city in 1998 and the restored community center reopened on Memorial Day weekend 2004.
The Willard Opera House occupied the upper floor of Charles Harding's General Store on the east side of Main Street, across from South Center Street. The opera hall, which had a small stage with wing space, was also used for recreation and dances. The Willard Opera House was in use around 1890 and was later destroyed by fire.
