ELKTON, Va. (WHSV) - Some may have noticed the marquee lit up at the old Elkton Theater on Saturday evening for the first time in more than 30 years.
Contractors took down the 16-foot wall around the theater, revealing the progress that had been made on the exterior. The inside isn't ready for a show just yet, but that is the next step in the restoration process.
"Being from here, and especially if you grew up here during the era that the theater was operational, to see this being brought back to life, it's honestly a gift," said contractor Adam Good.
The Elkton Theater isn't only piece of downtown undergoing renovations. Good said several other projects are in the works.
Good also credited the success of the restoration process so far to support from town leaders including town manager and the mayor.
