Fresno Memorial Auditorium (1935)
2425 Fresno Street
Monumental Moderne with Art
The Memorial Auditorium was, from 1936 to 1966, Fresno's most significant cultural facility. All of the individuals connected with its design and construction were notable architects, engineers, artists, and contractors. The building's Art Deco exterior was outstanding for its time, and is unchanged from its original construction. The building has additional significance because of the many political and entertainment personalities who have appeared before its audiences.
