Built in 1864, Bent's Opera House is the cornerstone structure of Medina's Downtown Historic District. It is one of the oldest surviving opera houses in the United States, having been built at the height of the Civil War and the Lincoln Presidency. Its Medina Sandstone construction shares a heritage with such other notable places as the H. H. Richardson Towers, St. Louis RC Church, and St. Paul's Episcopal Cathedral in Buffalo NY, and countless other architectural masterpieces in Medina, Western New York, and around the world.

The building is owned by the Orleans Renaissance Group, Inc., a 501(c)(3) volunteer organization, dedicated to preservation and cultural events in and around the Medina, NY area. The Group's vision for the edifice is a full and complete restoration/renovation.

Tax deductible contributions to the restoration project, both large and small, may be made to: The Orleans Renaissance Group, Inc., PO Box 543, Medina, New York 14103.
