Corinthian Hall, 1865
A dedication ball, held in early December in spite of nearly impassable muddy streets, was attended by a "very select and brilliant assembly." There were tasteful decorations of flags and evergreens, "exceedingly good" music, and a 1:00 a.m. supper served in the private dining hall. The building, "of which there is no larger, more beautiful or more costly" in the oil region (according to the Titusville Herald), was ready for public use.
