About Civic Auditorium

History plays a large part in today's Hanford. Historic buildings artfully preserved help create a beautiful vacation for those who seek to connect with the past. For many years Hanford had the only opera house between the Los Angeles and San Francisco areas. In 1923, construction began on an assembly hall. This hall, known as the Civic Auditorium, was dedicated in 1924. It still stands today in downtown Hanford. The main auditorium is utilized extensively by community groups and organizations.
