Grant For Roderick Building Renovations
2014 Officers Announced
"Opera House" Renovation Grant

Approximately a year ago James Roderick of Roderick & Associates purchased a historic building located at 1122 West Main Street. The building, once known as the Opera House, has undergone extensive renovations inside and out. Originally built in 1902, the wooden part of the building was burned in March of 1916. Plans were begun immediately to rebuild the Opera House. Although it has had many names over the years, the building has seen vaudeville and movies in addition to opera. Mr. Roderick is shown here receiving checks from Collinsville Downtown, Inc. Director Mary Risley, for a façade grant in the amount of $2,000 as well as a paint grant also in the amount of $2,000. Congratulations Mr. Roderick on a job well done.
