FOR SALE? Some St. Martinville officials have proposed the sale of the historic Duchamp Opera House in the city’s downtown historic district. The building, which dates back to the 1830s, was donated to the city by the Reuben-Willie-Zerben Bienvenu family in 1998 and underwent extensive renovations. But the cost of keeping the facility open, with little or no income-producing activites generated, is being called into question.(Sally Angelle)

The city has begun looking for ideas to eliminate the ongoing expense of owning the 1830-vintage Duchamp Opera House. At the September 18 city council meeting, Dist.1 councilman Mike Fuselier said the time has come to rethink the city’s involvement with the historic building.
