Help Coming For Pocahontas Opera House
Local governments and a private organization are working to preserve the historic Pocahontas Opera House. Pocahontas Mayor Benjamin Gibson says some bricks on the building's front have come loose and will be replaced, along with some of the mortar. A ramp will be installed to improve access for people with disabilities. The opera house was built in the late 1880s by the Southwest Virginia Improvement Company.
