Revolution Hall

1300 S.E. Stark St., Portland, OR 97214

Revolution Hall is a beautifully renovated performing arts center housed within the former George Washington High School building in Southeast Portland.

Founded in 1906 as Eastside High, the school was renamed in 1909 to Washington High and moved to the iconic brick landmark at SE 14th and Stark St., built in 1924 after a fire destroyed the original building. The school boasts many notable alumni such as Portland’s original food enthusiast and chef James Beard and Nobel Peace and Nobel Prize in Chemistry scholar Linus Pauling.

The school was closed in 1981 by Portland Public Schools due to low enrollment. The facility was occasionally used for various purposes and events, but remained predominantly vacant over the years. Since its purchase in 2013, the 113,500 square foot building has been extensively renovated to accommodate offices, a roof top deck for weddings and private events and an 830-seat performing arts venue.
