Description (ca. 1921): Corinthian Hall, formerly known as the Athenaeum was an important part of Rochester history. Located on Exchange Place (now Corinthian Street), Corinthian Hall was a lecture hall where people such as Frederick Douglas, Susan Douglas, Charles Dickens and more spoke about the issues at the time. This hall was an important part of the women's suffrage movement as well as the abolishment of slavery. Destroyed by a fire in 1898, it was rebuilt in 1904 as the theater. Then in 1928, it was destroyed to make place for a parking lot.
