Cheboygan Opera House
Opened: 1877, renovated 1984
The Cheboygan Opera House is on the upper floors of the city hall. In contrast to the trend in NYC of keeping theatre exteriors and gutting the interiors, a 1980s renovation lovingly restored the interior while cladding the building with an unfortunate mansard roof that was the fashion of the time.
You are a New Yorker when what was there before is more real and solid than what is here now. (Colson Whitehead)
