DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) – It hasn’t held a performance in 100 years, but that will soon change. Construction is underway at the Delphi Opera House.

A news conference was held Wednesday in front the Opera House to show the final plans for the building. All three floors of the building will be renovated. Plans include a ballroom, space for wedding receptions, and of course, the opera.

Advisory Board chair Anita Werling said the opera house could be huge for downtown development.

“I think the possibilities are only limited by the imagination. As you can see at the event [Wednesday], there are an awful lot of people with a great deal of imagination,” said Werling.

Construction is expected to be finished by the end of 2015. The project will cost more $4.275 million to complete. More than half of that funding will come from the Stellar Communities program.
