The Gaslight Theatre

Sistersville, WV

The Gaslight Theatre was built in 1898 and was called the Paramount Theater for many years.

Sistersville once boasted the most millionaires per capita of anywhere in the US. The area's wealth was fueled by an oil and gas boom in the late 1800's and early 1900's much like today's renewed interest in the Marcellus and Utica Shale formations. About 10 years ago the theater was completely renovated. Just a couple years ago, Terry Wiley purchased it and decided to start utilizing the Gaslight Theater for it's intended purpose....to entertain the people in the area.

The Gaslight seats 200 people and is located in the second floor of the building. Wiley runs a business on the first floor called Farmers Harvest. It specializes in unique gifts, Amish and local food plus antiques. There's a 1907 Ivers and Pond grand piano that graces the stage and stays tuned and ready for use.
