Preserve, Promote & Enhance our small town way of life.

The Baltimore Downtown Restoration Committee (BDRC) was founded in 2007 as a volunteer organization dedicated to making Baltimore’s unique dual downtown areas more appealing places to live, shop, dine, work, or visit. Inspired by the Main Street organization model, the group has undertaken many different projects and programs as both the community and the organization have changed over time. The BDRC is now a 501 (c) 3 non-profit; however, the group’s mission has remained relatively consistent working with village leaders and citizens in revitalizing Baltimore’s downtowns and overall village growth.

Restoring the Victoria Opera House

The BDRC meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7pm at the Victoria Opera House. Visitors are always welcome, as are volunteers who seek to preserve history, enhance the quality of life in Baltimore, or give back to the small town that offers such a great place to raise a family, run a business, or work in.

Victoria Opera House

Built in 1905, the Victoria Opera House is the last remaining historical opera house in Fairfield County. The theater ceased functioning as a movie house in the early 1960s and the auditorium was turned into a catch-all storage space. In 2013, the BDRC acquired a lease from the Baltimore Village and has been working to update and maintain the building ever since. More work needs to be done. 

Join us in saving this beautiful theater.
