Litchfield Opera House
A Star Tribune story reports that the Litchfield City Council isn't interested in saving its historic opera house. The city refused state matching funds for a renovation. The Litchfield City Council has voted to "move toward demolition," according to the Strib. The 106-year-old building was designed by William T. Towner of St. Paul. The Preservation Alliance of Minnesota listed the building as one of the state's most endangered in 2003. Also on the list that year: Guthrie Theater designed by Ralph Rapson of Minneapolis. The Preservation Alliance is taking nominations for its 2007 list through January 26.
