Moberly Municipal Auditorium – Moberly MO

Description

This is an excellent example of the clean, rounded lines of art deco architecture used in a large municipal auditorium that was recently restored and brought back to its original appearance.  Ludwig Abt also designed the school in nearby Renick.

The total cost of the project was $160,000 with a Federal portion of $92,000.  At the dedication, the Governor gave the keynote address and the music was provided by Ozzie Nelson and his band. The auditorium also served as the local national guard armory.
