Completed in 1925, the Macon City Auditorium is nestled in the historic district of downtown Macon and is a landmark listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Its monumental assembly hall seats 2,700 and its unique copper dome is reportedly the largest in the world. Adding even more to its splendor and stately architecture is the Doric-style limestone colonnade which surrounds three sides of the building at the balcony level.
On the inside, the Great Hall seats 2,700. Over the stage, a breathtaking mural by Don Carlos Dubois and Wilbur Kurtz depicts Macon’s history from DeSoto’s visit in 1540 to WWI. Today, hundreds of big name entertainers and thousands of regular folk continue to make their mark here with some of the most successful concerts, events, and meetings in the region.
