About

First RNC was here in 1856.

The first Republican National Convention was held here, June 17-19, 1856. Many luminaries appeared here, including Charles Dickens. It is now condominiums and the theater section no longer exists. See, for ex., the Wikipedia entry for Musical Fund Hall. It has a real historical plaque in front of it, see http://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-first-republican-national-convention-in-the-musical-fund-hall-here-57682216.html.
