Remembering the past, planning the future

Built in 1888

The Old Town Hall (OTH)/Opera House has been the scene for many dances, plays, graduationsweddings, baby showers and wakes. The old Metamora Union School used it for school events, including indoor sportsIn 1979, the Township chose to lease the little building over to the newly formed Metamora Historical Society (MHS),  and a major restoration project began. Thanks to the inspiration of the community and the many volunteer workers, the building was brought back to life. The restored hall now sits as an integral part of the Village. It has been preserved as a very important player in Metamora’s History.

Today the Metamora Historical Society remains active by hosting fundraisers and being an integral part of the various events within the village including Metamora Country Days, the annual Christmas Tree Lighting with Santa and Celebration of the HorseThe MHS Board also promotes the renting of the hall for special events and/or personal family activities. The cost to rent the hall for one day is $150 or less. If you have a unique use for of the hall – such as weekly classes or community related events – the board may be able to set-up a special fee.
