Starnes History

Our Historic Location

The Starnes and Parker families erected a building in the downtown commercial district of Albemarle in 1907 with two businesses downstairs and an opera house upstairs. One of these businesses, Starnes Jewelers, has been continuously operated by the Starnes family since the building was built. 

The Albemarle Opera House

The elegant Albemarle Opera House seated 800 people and was a center for entertainment. People came from miles around to view plays, concerts, traveling minstrel shows and vaudeville


Shapes of diamonds

The Albemarle Opera House is an opulent example of the Romanesque Revival style
