Title 56 Beaufain Street (Memminger Auditorium)
Object Type Property File
Scope & Content Constructed ca. 1938. Albert Simons, architect. Scholars of Robert Mills have recognized the relationship of the design of this school and civic auditorium to the work of Charleston's most famous native born architect, particularly because of the inset Doric columns of the portico. Plans for restoration of this important classic theater, long a venue for Charleston music and civic events, remain uncertain.

File contains newspaper articles; history from Buildings of Charleston and from Information for Guides of Historic Charleston (scant); brief historical research notes.
