Historic Homestake Opera House
Built by the Homestake Gold Mine in 1914, this performing arts venue and recreation center on Lead's Main Street was nicknamed "The Jewel of the Black Hills" for its stunning craftsmanship. The building boasted a library, bowling alley, billiards hall, social hall, heated indoor swimming pool, including an exquisite theater that sat 1,000 people. The building survived a devastating fire in 1984 but now features theatre, concerts, educational presentations, private and group tours, and community events all year while the theater makes progress in restoration.
