Historic Homestake Opera House in Lead, SDFirst opened in 1914, this opulent performing arts theater and recreation venue was funded by Phoebe Hearst, owner of the Homestake Gold Mine at the time. A center of the community in its heyday, the Opera House featured a 1,000-seat theater, a social hall, an indoor heated swimming pool, billiards, a bowling alley and a library. A devastating fire in 1984 almost ruined the building's rich history, which is now being restored to its former glory. Visitors can take a tour and see interpretive exhibits, or catch one of the 50 annual shows at the theater.
