The Walhalla Performing Arts Center strives to provide a world-class facility for performances, conferences and special events in order to enhance the cultural and social life of Upstate South Carolina.
Originally a grade school built in 1903, this auditorium was added in 1913. When the building no longer suited the school district’s needs, it lay empty until a group of citizens began discussing how to breathe new life into a wonderful building.
In 1993 the Walhalla Auditorium Restoration Committee created a charter, obtained a lease and a 501(c)3 designation and restoration began. The first performance happened in August 2003 when Emile Pandolfi played to a full house.
The Walhalla Performing Arts Center is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
