Historic Hibernian Hall was built in 1913 as a social club and dance venue for recently arriving Irish immigrants and in the 1960’s it became the headquarters for Opportunities Industrialization Center, a vocational training program created to uplift the community. Acquired by MPDC, the building and its beautiful 2 story ballroom with sweeping arched windows was fully restored to its original grandeur in 2005, opening for the Roxbury neighborhood as an innovative arts and culture venue.
