Notes
Albert Kahn and Ernest Wilby, architects. Constructed on the site of the old Winchell House on North University Avenue. The building was completed in 1913 and is named after Regent Arthur Hill, who bequeathed more than half the cost of the building. Originally seated an audience of 4,300 and housed the original Frieze Memorial Organ from 1913-1928. When the organ was replaced, the name was retained. The building was renovated from 2002-2004 by Albert Kahn Associates (Project Architects & Engineers) and Quinn Evans/Architects (Historic Preservation Architects).
On verso: "Located on North University Street was built in 1913 and seats 4,200 persons. The auditorium is used for music and dance presentations, lectures and academic gatherings. It contains the Frieze Memorial Organ and the Stearns Collection of Musical Instruments."
