About the Project

With the support of Mayor Oscar Holcombe, construction for Miller Outdoor Theatre, then called Miller Memorial Theatre (named for Jesse Wright Miller), began in 1921. The original structure was designed by William Ward Watkin as an amphitheater surrounded by ten Corinthian-style limestone columns on each side. On May 12, 1923, the theater was dedicated with a grand pageant entitled Springtimes of Our Nation featuring 2,500 performers.
