Louisville Memorial Auditorium

The Louisville Memorial Auditorium offers rich history and architectural beauty, while offering modern conveniences.

Louisville Memorial Auditorium was created through the outgrowth of two movements — for a public auditorium and as a memorial to commemorate the local community who served in World War I. 

The Greek Revival building was designed by internationally renowned architect, Thomas Hastings, who was assisted by Louisville architect E.T. Hutchings. It was dedicated on Memorial Day, May 30, 1929.

Louisville Memorial Auditorium hosts a variety of concerts, stage productions, graduations, meetings, presentations and dance recitals & competitions.

It has been designated a landmark by the Louisville Landmarks Commission and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
