Revolution Hall Event Space

Located in the iconic Portland Landmark, Washington High School, the 3,700 sf historic auditorium was renovated into Revolution Hall, a live music venue for a well-known regional music promoter. The 800-seat, two-story auditorium included a state-of-the-art sound equipment and boasts the original preserved wooden seats. With state-of-the-art acoustic solutions, tenants in the classrooms-turned-office-spaces were protected from the new venue’s sound, allowing office space and concert venue to harmoniously coexist in a former high school building.

Originally named East Side High School, Washington High School was originally built in 1907 and rebuilt in 1924 after a devastating fire. After briefly merging with Monroe High School, an all-girls vocational school, and changing its name to Washington-Monroe High School or “WAMO,” the school was officially closed to students in 1981, standing vacant for almost two decades. Details such as antique IBM clocks, slate chalkboards, classic pencil sharpeners and teacher’s cabinets can be found in the offices, while memorabilia from the school’s rich history is displayed in a trophy case.
