Memorial Hall

Dedicated on January 5, 1910, Memorial Hall was conceived as a tribute to local Civil and Spanish-American War veterans. After a competitive search, two Dayton architects—William Earl Russ and Albert Pretzinger—were selected to design the French Renaissance building.

The memorial itself consists of the soaring front entrance atrium (filled with bronze plaques), relief sculptures, and regional military history paintings. Inscribed on the building’s facade are Civil War battles where Montgomery County soldiers saw action. On the steps leading up to Memorial Hall, two sculptures depict soldiers from the Spanish-American War and World War I.
