The Historic Homestake Opera House (HHOH) was a visionary architectural and cultural gift to the City of Lead in 1914 from part owner of the Homestake Gold Mine, Phoebe Hearst, who cared deeply about arts, culture, and education for the miners and their families. The facility included a library, theater, indoor pool, and bowling alley. The theater burned in 1984 and sat empty for over a decade. The HHOH has raised and spent more than $4 million in restoration, programs, and operations to date. The HHOH is a contributing landmark in the historic district of Lead, SD, on the National Register of Historic Places, and is a National Landmark of American Music.

Historic Homestake Opera House Society is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation established in 1998 with the mission of returning the Opera House to productive use for the education and enrichment of the citizens of our community in order to provide educational and cultural opportunities for generations to come.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
