Our Mission Statement

Our Mission:
Provide and preserve a historic venue for performing arts, cultural, educational, and community events, to promote and enhance the economic vitality of the greater Saratoga Springs region, and to serve citizens of that region through use of its facilities for appropriate events.

Throughout its long history, Universal Preservation Hall has been a community gathering space. It was built, in fact, as a venue that could host speakers like Frederick Douglass, Theodore Roosevelt and William Jennings Bryan in addition to being a Methodist church.  Find out more about our building history.
