German American Hall, Akron, Ohio

German American Hall

Funded by Werner Printing and Lithograph Company’s founder, Paul E. Werner, the German American Hall was constructed as a place for German activities. He called it “The Deutsch Haus” (The German House). As anti-German sentiments arose during World War I, it became necessary to rebrand the building as simply the Music Hall.
