    The Opera House that was torn down to make way for the Williams College Studio Art Building was built originally to be the Methodist Church. When the Methodist Church raised enough funds to build the brick church, now at the corner of Water and Main Streets, the old building was moved back on the lot, an raised, and a new part was built on the first floor. This was then used for some time as an Opera House, at the end of the 19th century, and beginning of the 20th centuries, before housing Taconic Lumber. It could not have possibly been "A classic early 20th-century 'opera house'”, since the building predates the 20th century.
