Memorial Hall in OTR

Memorial Hall in OTR

Memorial Hall in Over-the-Rhine was designed in 1908 by Samuel Hannaford & Sons. Erected to honor the county’s war veterans, the Beaux Arts structure is now primarily used for concerts, performances and other events [John McCain gave a speech here before the Ohio Primary]. Memorial Hall is a stop on the Architreks walking tour of Over-the-Rhine, sponsored by the Cincinnati Preservation Association, and also hosts the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra Chamber Players and the annual MusicNOW Festival.

  1. Great Photos!

    To shamless plug the upcoming Architreks “Building Holidays” tour, Memorial Hall will be a stop and everyone on tour will get a chance to go inside and see the fantastic interiors of Memeorial Hall. December 6 at 10:00 am or 12:30 pm.

  2. Thanks for the heads-up, Dan. Randy, the “exit” sign looks bunk, but I don’t think you could have an unobtrusive sign for something like that, unfortunately.
