The History of the Worcester Memorial Auditorium
On this edition of Tercentennial Talk with Hank and Amy we learn about the history of the Memorial Auditorium. Turns out the question of what to use the Aud for came up almost immediately after it was built in the early 1930’s. Jake Sanders of the Architectural Heritage Foundation talks about the challenge, a $100 million challenge, of solving the riddle of the long vacant building. Jake talks about the love for the “Aud ” in the community and some of the ideas for the future including a possible home for esports tournaments. It has been 23 years since the Aud had a useful purpose and a large investor is going to have to commit a substantial amount to get the ball rolling on this redevelopment.
