Jun 30 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm
Special Walking Tour: Hoover and South Auditoriums @ Meet at 10:30 at the front entrance of Hoover.

Special Walking Tour: Hoover and South Auditoriums with Gretchen Curtis as leader: The speaker’s stand and bench seats at the first Lakeside Campmeeting in 1873 were located in the same block where Hoover Auditorium stands. The first auditorium, built in 1878, was modified several times over 50 years until it was demolished in September 1928 to make way for a new Central Auditorium. In June 1929, the structure we know as Hoover Auditorium opened with its massive arches and 3,000 seats. We will travel through time from 1878 to 2016, discussing modifications to our grand auditorium. If time permits, we will tour the more modest South (German) Auditorium built in 1883.
