Memorial Hall, the 1908 Beaux Arts building designed by famous Cincinnati architect Samuel Hannaford, prospered in the first half of the 20th century. By the late 1970s, however, it was described in an Enquirer article as a “forgotten jewel.” The building had fallen into disuse as the last of the veterans of the Civil War and Spanish-American War had died and its historic Over-the-Rhine neighborhood began to decline.
It’s been nearly 40 years, but revitalization activities begun two years ago indicate Memorial Hall is far from forgotten. Rather, it is gaining increased recognition as one of Cincinnati’s most important civic and arts treasures.
Memorial Hall is the perfect place for a wedding or wedding reception. It's beautiful, centrally located and an incredibly memorable place.
