About Pueblo Memorial Hall

Pueblo Memorial Hall was dedicated on September 25, 1919 by President Woodrow Wilson at his last public address and was named as a memorial to those who died in World War I. Memorial Hall is a rare and beautiful example of late 19th Century and early 20th Century auditorium design. It is one of the few representative structures of this period and type in the State of Colorado. The Hall is notable for a number of singular performance events: In addition to President Woodrow Wilson’s final public address, Rafael Cavallo was the first symphony orchestra conductor at Memorial Auditorium and John Phillip Sousa was the first band concert performance. It is famous for the broad variety of performances it has provided for the regional community including community arts performances, dance recitals, theater performances and more. It has served as the anchor of the regional cultural community for more than nine decades.
