Overview

Built in 1878, Frederick Ernst Ruffini designed this fabulous two-story limestone opera house; Millett Opera House is the last surviving structure by this architect in the city of Austin. This grand building hosted more than just opera in its day. Boxing matches, vaudeville, political rallies and medicine shows filled out the playbill for this establishment. The lavish interior is even grander than the outside. This wonderful example of Victorian architecture is available for private functions.
