Jersey City’s Eagle Hall Reopens


Jersey City’s
Eagle Hall, a historic building that opened in 1910, has been home to community events, dance recitals, weddings, and concerts. After being closed for restoration and renovation since 2011, the space officially reopened on Friday, April 7th as a new performing arts center. According to NJ.com, the building was “created by Polish immigrants and craftsmen under the Rev. Peter Boleslaus Kwiatowski. He built dozens of churches throughout Hudson and Essex counties, but Jersey City was where he called home. Just before his death in 1934, he transferred ownership of White Eagle Hall to St. Anthony Church.” At that time, the space was used as a practice area for the St. Anthony basketball team, as well as other community events. The new renovation has transformed the space into a theater that can hold 400 people seated and 800 standing. Jersey Digs recently shared that the renovation brought state of the art modern technology and sound proofing that will make it a top theater in the area, all while ensuring that  much of the historical integrity of the space has been preserved. Visit Eagle Hall’s website for more photos, details, and performance lineup updates.
