Listed in the National Register of Historic Places since 1972, by 1986 local residents organized the McPherson Opera House Preservation Company in an effort to save the building from destruction. Still with an uncertain future, KPA placed the building on its Most Endangered list in 1998. Rehabilitation of the 1888 McPherson Opera House began in September 2005 with the grand re-opening held on January 28, 2010.
