Date: 1911
Source Type: Photograph
Publisher, Printer, Photographer: Joseph Decker
Postmark: Not applicable
Collection: Steven R. Shook
Remark: This structure, located at 162 West Lincolnway and built circa 1875, originally housed the Grand Opera House, operated by L. D. Bondy. It was a venue for numerous theatrical, musical, and vaudeville performances in Valparaiso. The opening of the G. A. R. Memorial Opera House in 1891, however, seriously affected business at the Grand Opera House. The Valparaiso Odd Fellows then located in the structure. Later, this structure housed the furniture and undertaking business of Stinchfield & Fehrman Company, followed by department store retailer Sears, Roebuck and Company.
