The Goss Opera House

The Goss Opera House


The community of Watertown, SD saved the 130-year-old Goss Opera House from destruction, just recently completing a $5MM renovation to the 37,000 s.f. building. Modern touches now accentuate the remarkable history of the area’s last remaining opera house.

The Goss offers numerous spectacular spaces perfect for your next business meeting, family gathering, or wedding celebration. Whether you are hosting 3 or 300, we are happy to spoil your guests with stunning décor, beautiful lighting, high-end sound systems, elegant restrooms, and assured comfort with our state-of-the-art heating and cooling system.

During your visit, get lost in the stories of the tenacious Charles Goss, revel in the extravagance of the inaugural Merchant’s Ball, and contemplate the tragic demise of Maude Alexander, one of the building’s first tenants.
