The Walhalla Civic Auditorium complex is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Originally the Walhalla Graded School, established in 1903, housed children of all grades. In 1915, a class graduated from the stage of the school's newly added auditorium. The Oconee School District Administration was the last to use the building for educational purposes.
The vision of restoring the auditorium came as early as 1991. A small committee was formed, received a lease, created a charter, and gained a 501(c)3 designation in order to restore the auditorium. In 2003 the Walhalla Auditorium Restoration Committee became the Walhalla Civic Auditorium Corporation. In September 2004, the building and land were deeded to the corporation.
Our mission has been to provide a first-class facility for performances, conferences, and seminars that would enhance the cultural and social life of the area.
The Auditorium offers 453 seats including 123 in the balcony, professional sound and lighting, and an ambiance befitting the period of this elegant and historical venue. A newly created reception room with a 120 seat capacity and a unique gift shop add to your experience.
