Features of Music Hall's High Victorian Gothic Revival Style

Designed by the firm of Hannaford and Procter, Cincinnati Music Hall is considered one of the best examples of this style.

In the lithograph on the right, you can see a number of characteristics of High Victorian Gothic Revival Style:

  • the steeply-pitched gabled roof
  • pointed arches
  • corbelled brick work
  • decorative brick banding across the structure
  • tracery, as seen at the top of the center windows, below the Rose Window

It's one thing to read about it, but more interesting and fun to experience in person! The story of Music Hall's design and construction, the structural details, the people involved - all come alive for you when you take an SPMH Tour. Outdoor tours are held twice weekly, May through October.

SPMH can also bring a "virtual" tour to you! Call 513.744.3293 for details.
