Description

View of the block which stood on the site where Town Hall now stands. It burned to the ground during the Blizzard of 1888. It was often referred to as the "Opera House" due to the large hall on the third floor which was the venue for concerts and other entertainments, as well as town meetings. The Cooper house next door and the Union Block adjacent are also visible.
