Tarrytown Music Hall
It’s in the tiny sixth percentile of theaters built in the US before the year 1900, and there’s a good chance its elegance will outshine those erected in the year 2100. The noble brick facade. The sash windows bordered by painted wood. The cast-iron parapet at the center of the roof. But it’s not just the architecture that made Tarrytown Music Hall’s 1980 inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places seem long overdue. It also possesses a rich history. Famous figures such as the Rockefellers and Vanderbilts patronized the theater in its early days, when the Tarrytown was one of the first venues to usher in the dawn of cinema. During the venue’s “Millionaire’s Colony” era, the stage even played home to Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson, who regaled the crowd with speeches and their famous plate-spinning act.<p>
