Hibernian Hall, 184 Dudley St., Roxbury, Mass.

PC001.03.01.TMP.054 (RS325)

Description

Architects Edward T. P. Graham and Joseph M. Dolan designed Hibernian Hall, also known as the Hibernian Building, at 182-186 Dudley Street in Roxbury, Massachusetts. Several cars are parked in front of the building. An empty space with a Dudley Realty Co. sign in the window and what appears to be a restaurant occupy the first floor. Built by the Hibernian Building Association of Boston Highlands to house local chapters of the Ancient Order of Hibernians and dedicated on Oct. 1, 1913, the building contained seven meeting halls, a ballroom, and stores, as well as serving as a cultural center for the Irish American community. Hibernian Hall also hosted concerts of Irish music. Today the building is home to Arts, Culture and Trade Roxbury (ACT Roxbury) under the name, the Roxbury Center for the Arts at Hibernian Hall.
