The Ogden Theatre & Ballroom opened on Thanksgiving Day 1928. Later renamed Lincoln Theatre it became eligible in 1992 for listing in the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion A for its association with the cultural history of the African-American community in Columbus. The building was developed by an African-American fraternal organization; constructed by an African-American construction company; managed by an important local African-American entrepreneur; and was a center for stage and screen entertainment for Columbus' African-American population for decades. It is one of the best remaining vestiges of early 20th century African-American history in the city.
The Lincoln Theatre reopened 25th May 2009, after renovations and restorations had been carried out
