The Buckhannon Opera House is located on Main Street in the heart of historic Buckhannon, West Virginia.

The Buckhannon Opera House is in what is originally the Crislip and Simpson Building built in 1893 and is accessed between the Chamber and Visitors Center and Citizens Bank of West Virginia. G.C. Murphy operated a retail store from 1928 through its closure in 1997, eventually expanding to the buildings on either side. The location was last used as Main Street Antiques until it moved across the street in 2012.
