Contest #496: Haskell Free Library and Opera House, Derby Line, VT, USA and Stanstead, PQ, Canada

Built around 1900, this building is both a National Historic Site of Canada and is listed on the US National Register of Historic Places. The main entrance is on the US side, but there is a Canadian entrance as well to negate most customs/immigration hassles of citizens of either country visiting the location. The opera house stage is on the Canadian side and most of the seats are on the US side. Similarly, the checkout desk of the library is on the US side, but most of the library collection is on the Canadian side.
