Belle Mehus Auditorium
Belle Mehus Auditorium is an auditorium located in downtown Bismarck, best known as the home of the Bismarck-Mandan Symphony Orchestra.
The auditorium was designed by local resident Arthur Van Horn and opened in January 1914. The facility took on its current name in 1989, named after a local music teacher. In 1996, the Belle Mehus Auditorium underwent a major renovation at a cost of $2.5 million.
President Woodrow Wilson spoke from the Auditorium on October 10, 1919. He was campaigning for his vision of a League of Nations.
The Belle Mehus is also referred to as the ‘Bismarck City Auditorium’ or simply ‘The Auditorium’.
