Nearly six months after an explosion rocked Downtown Canton, the Chamber of Commerce announces the Opera House will be coming down.
The Opera House was home to many local businesses, including the Chamber. November’s explosion made the building unsafe for those businesses to return.
The building’s owner, Kert Huber, offered to donate the building to the city. The city rejected the donation, so Huber is funding the demolition. That process will begin after the grand re-opening of the downtown, which is Saturday.
