Such beautiful architecture throughout. Currently being renovated to keep it going for years to come! Something you have to see if you come to Clinton County Ohio.

The Murphy Theatre is a very old theatre and the only one of it's kind located in Wilmington Ohio. We enjoy attending concerts & movies at the Murphy. The history is very interesting as well as the interior of the theatre.
