Municipal Auditorium, Moberly, MO 1939
Project type: Auditoriums and Arenas, Civic Facilities
Artists: Ludwig AbtView Project in a Separate Window
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.
