Inscription. 332 Godfrey Peters converted the east half of this building into a theater in 1904. The Peterís Opera House, complete with sloped floor, stage and two balconies, opened to a packed house with the showing of a five-act play. A bandstand was built over the sidewalk for outdoor music and a speaker forum. The Home Market purchased the theater in 1946 and renovated it to expand their grocery business. When the Elks purchased the building in 1960, this half of the downstairs was remodeled into a banquet hall.
 
Erected by City of Yreka.
