Memorial Hall

Memorial Hall

Memorial Hall is conveniently located in the heart of the revitalized arts district of Over-the-Rhine. This exquisite venue overlooks Washington Park, and is adjacent to Music Hall in addition to being down the street from both the School for Creative and Performing Arts and soon-to-be completed new home of the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company.

Designed by Samuel Hannaford, the hall features marble staircases adorned with intricate wrought iron that lead to the 550-seat proscenium theater, dubbed the Annie W. and Elizabeth M. Anderson Theater. Exceptional acoustics, decorative murals and Tiffany chandeliers enhance this historic theater. Memorial Hall offers an elegant setting for performances and unique spaces for social and business events.

Built in 1908 by the Grand Army of the Republic, the Hamilton County Memorial Building stands as a monument to the Cincinnati veterans of the Spanish-American War and the U.S. Civil War.

The hall’s 550-seat theater and concert hall has beautiful Tiffany chandeliers, bas-relief plaster scrollwork and a sky ceiling mural.

Clement Bamhorn, a locally prominent sculptor, carved six figures above the exterior doors, each wearing a military uniform representing forces from the Revolutionary War through the Spanish American War.

Marble staircases adorned with wrought iron, flowing hallways and stenciled murals by Francis Pedretti complete this imposing example of the Beaux Arts Style.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978,
