Our farmstead was established in 1868, by the Levi Collner family, starting with just the farmhouse. As the farm grew, the need for more space to house livestock and store farming equipment did too. In the summer of 1869, construction of what is now the Silver Fox Theater, began. Neighbors, family, and friends joined Mr. Collner on one hot, summer day for a "barn-raising" and by the evening, the barn's frame was standing.
Over the next 82 years the farmstead stayed in the Collner family, until eventually it was passed down to Levi's granddaughter, Sarah Collner-Vensel. In the summer of 1951 Sarah converted the barn into a summer stock barn theater, which was popular throughout the East Coast in the 1900's. On July 7th 1951, the barn saw its first production and from then on it was history. Sarah even kept livestock in the barn for the first few years of production, making it truly a "barn theater". Until summer of 1981, the Silver Fox Theater attracted thousands of people each summer and was known as the most successful summer stock theater in Western Pennsylvania.
