Arlington Hall


Arlington Hall opened to the public as a field house in 1939. Once the site of USO dances and Red Cross blood drives during World War II, the Greek Revival-style hall has continued to host social gatherings, weddings, conferences and other events for eight decades.

The surrounding natural beauty of Turtle Creek Park adds to the stately appeal of Arlington Hall. Visitors also appreciate the ease and efficiency of the Hall’s valet parking, the warm atmosphere indoors and the expansive outdoor gardens, terraces and pavilions.


Noteworthy architect Mark Lemmon designed the Hall, as well as Dallas icons like the Cotton Bowl, Perkins Chapel at SMU, the Hall of State at Fair Park and numerous public schools across Texas. The Hall’s Greek Revival style is found on many significant structures throughout history, including the British Museum and Second Bank of the United States in Philadelphia.
