The Daily Delawhere for October 10, 2018

The Smyrna Opera House, on South Street at Main Street in Smyrna. The structure was built in 1869, and actually never served as an opera house. The first floor contained town offices, a library, a jail, and an engine house. A meeting hall was housed in the second story, featuring long windows along the walls. Frederick Douglass spoke here in 1880, and Presidential candidate William Jennings Bryan spoke here in 1900.  Photo by xzmattzx.

Delaware politics from a liberal, progressive and Democratic perspective. Keep Delaware Blue.

  1. And 3 million of Federal money played here as well to rebuild the place. Thanks Joe!
