From the outside, Town Hall Seattle serves as a beacon for fans of the performing arts with its white terra-cotta sides that reflect light in the winter and glow after rain. The building also borrows from numerous Roman Revival–style architectural elements, such as six two-story columns, a central dome with an oculus, and far-reaching glass windows draped with Julius Caesar’s togas. Vaulted ceilings and thick masonry walls form an acoustic dream for Town Hall Seattle’s host of guest performers, which regularly includes orchestras, singers, and other musical talents. Town Hall Seattle still retains many aspects of its original 1922 design, such as the wooden pews and Tiffany-style light fixtures.
