Hearst Hall was constructed in 1900 as the original home of the National Cathedral School. Built in the Beaux-Arts style of architecture, it has been designated a historic landmark.
Hearst Auditorium is located on the first floor of Hearst Hall. A versatile room, Hearst Auditorium has dramatic 25’-high ceilings and oversized windows with wonderful views of the Washington National Cathedral. The acoustics are excellent, and chamber as well as solo recitals are held here regularly. This room has served as a reception hall comfortably seating 140 people on six-foot rounds or up to 300 in lecture format. With easy access to the beautiful Oak Court and the grounds of the National Cathedral, this space is quickly becoming recognized as one of Washington’s best-kept secrets for wedding receptions and other large events.
