Massillon had one of the finest opera houses between Pittsburgh and Chicago.  It occupied the block where the SARTA transfer station and city parking deck are now located.  Built in 1869 by a group of leading businessmen, it hosted boxers like John L. Sullivan, activists like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and singers like Lillian Russell.  The first floor was commercial, the second city government offices, and the third was the performance hall.

Directions: Turn right onto Erie Street and walk one short block to the corner of Diamond Court.
