Beethoven Hall (1874-1878) was an auditorium in Boston, Massachusetts, that hosted musical performances and other entertainments in the 1870s.[1] It sat on Washington Street, near Boylston Street, in today's Boston Theater District/Chinatown neighborhood.[2] In 1879 the renovated hall re-opened as the Park Theatre.[3] The building survived until 1990, when it was razed.[4]
