Struthers Library Theatre
Built in 1883, the Struthers Library Theatre is the 18th oldest continuously operating legitimate theatre in the United States, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. One of the most stunning historic theatres in Northwest Pennsylvania, the Struthers Library Theatre graces the corner of Liberty Street and Third Avenue West in the heart of Warren's Historic District. The Restoration Project consisted of masonry cleaning, re-pointing, stone patching, stone replacement, brick infill, brick replacement and painting.

Now she looks pristine and fresh, and so welcoming...a wonderful transformation for a building the public attends for laughter, entertainment and even personal renewal on occasion. We have received so many admiring comments.
