A historic opera house in Mount Vernon held some reopening ceremonies Thursday. 

 The Woodward Opera House began operations in 1851 on South Main Street. It operated until the early 1900s, when competition from movie theaters and other venues forced it to be repurposed as a commercial space. Operators say the official grand opening will be held early next month.
