Built in 1865 and once the centerpiece of the thriving Medina, NY community, Bent's Opera House has fallen into disrepair since its heyday in the early 20th century. The Orleans Renaissance Group has taken on the mission of not only restoring the opera house to its original glory but of turning this classic Medina Sandstone structure into a vital cultural, commercial, and agritourism hub. Check back with this site to watch the progress as we renovate this unique historic building.
