Travel  back  in  time

The year is 1878. A horse-drawn carriage makes its way through the bustling streets of Cleveland, TN. A passenger steps out, burdended with a magnificent vision, the likes of which the city had never seen.

23-year-old Walter Craigmiles gazed upon the plot of land he had selected near the city courthouse, and so began construction of the Craigmiles Hall Opera House, Cleveland's first art and cultural center.

The Opera House became the touchstone for a cultural awakening in Cleveland, answering the call of thousands who thirsted for intellectual improvement.

Graced by performances of such national treasures as the legendary composer and conductor John Phillip Sousa, the theater's civic, educational, and beneficent endeavors for the community were its true and lasting foundation.
