The Pocahontas County Opera House is located in rural Marlinton, West Virginia. Court reporter J.G. Tilton, of Mount Vernon, Ohio, built the original building in 1907. In 1910, the current building was added on. It currently serves as a performance venue for local and traveling performers as well as a community center for county residents, although it has at times been a newspaper, a roller rink, and a car dealership. The Pocahontas County Opera House Foundation operates as a non-profit to oversee programmatic aspects of the venue.
In the early twentieth century, groups from as far away as New York performed in this booming railroad town. In 1912, Tilton's newspaper, the Marlinton Messenger, published in the Opera House. County fairs, basketball games, and other community events took place in the space as well.
