Tony and Linda Shuman
Owners Tony and Linda Shuman took over the old General Store in 2003. Tony’s roots are in Covington, Indiana. He realized he missed home and music. Soon after quitting his job in Alabama, the couple found the Wallace location. Wallace is located about 10 miles north of Turkey Run State Park.
The Wallace Opry is a labor of love. Tony goes from the kitchen to the stage while Linda greets guests and serves tables. Nightly specials round out the sandwich and homemade pie and dessert menu.
Linda Shuman, right, chats with guests and takes food orders.
Iva Stevens has been coming to the Opry since it opened. “I come here and feel so much better!”

The Town of Wallace
The town of Wallace has a long history. The first cabin was erected in 1826. The Model T garage sits across the road from the café. And the 1871 Howe Truss covered bridge is set for restoration in the near future.
Visiting the Wallace Opry is a lesson in local history and music nostalgia. The atmosphere is relaxing. The bands immerse you in great music. Pick up a CD and take the music with you!
Stop in, or call for hours: (765) 397-3366. Note: the café is alcohol-free and cash-only. If you're planning to go on a music night, make a reservation.
This little gem makes you fall in love with small-town Indiana all over again!
