HISTORY

In 1860 Farrar Hall, a small theater that could seat 1500 people, was completed on the upper floor of 28 N Park Row. It was closed for renovations in 1872 and reopened the following year as the Park Opera House. At that time it was considered the largest theater between New York and Chicago.  It hosted acts ranging from dramatic to wrestling matches, a wild west show, minstrels, magicians, and vaudeville artists. The Park Opera House was demolished in 1939 to make way for the Greyhound Bus Depot.

The Greyhound building is Erie's only pure example of the Art Moderne style and was incorporated into the National Register of Historical Places in 1979 as part of the West Park Place historic district.

Since then it has been a pool hall, daycare center, Boardwalk nightclub, and now 28 North Gastropub/Resolution Nightclub.
