Designed by renowned Texas architect Alfred C. Finn in 1925 in Classic Revival style, it had an original seating capacity of 880. It was the cultural and entertainment center of this historic region for many years (Brenham/Washington County, the Birthplace of Texas Independence.)
Renowned Texas architect A.C. Finn designed several famous theatres in Houston, Dallas and Fort Worth, and the Simon Theatre in Brenham is the only one still standing! All others have been demolished. A capital campaign to “Save Our Simon” was succesful in restoring the theatre and ballroom, and plans included developing the property into the Simon Center, a small multi-use conference center, which had opened by 2013.
