The most distinctive lobby is the Sara Shallenberger Brown Lobby in the former Bank of Louisville building, designed by New Orleans architect James H. Dakin and built in 1837. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1972. For its historic preservation, the Old Bank of Louisville building was recently chosen by the Congress to receive a grant from the Save America’s Treasures program administered by the National Parks Service. The interior sustains the exterior’s combination of powerful scale and delicate detail: this is one of the most magnificent spaces in Louisville and admirably serving as the main lobby for Actors Theatre.
