North Carolina-Thalian Hall-December 27


North Carolina People, Places, and Things-December 27

I am the dad to five adult children. As they were growing up I attempted to remind them they were special and to implore them to learn something new. My goal was to do that daily.

In 2016 my goal is to learn something new daily on the people, places, and things that make North Carolina special. Everyday this year I am doing a post on what I have learned new.

One of the oldest theatres in the country sits in Wilmington NC. It’s name is Thalian Hall.

It is located at 310 Chestnut Street in Wilmington, NC 28401

Since its construction in 1855-1858, the Thalian Hall building has had the unusual distinction of serving as both the area’s political and cultural center. Listed on the National Register for Historic Places, Thalian Hall is the only surviving theatre designed by John Montague Trimble, one of America’s foremost 19th-century theatre architects.

It was built at a time when Wilmington was the largest city in the state. The new building housed the town government, the library, as well as an “Opera House”, seating 1,000 people, which was 10% of the population of the Town.
