Hibernian Hall has a rich history of service to Roxbury since it was built in 1913 by the Ancient Order of Hibernians and served as the hub of social activity for Boston’s Irish community for nearly 50 years. It later became the headquarters for the Opportunities Industrialization Center (OIC), an international training program founded by the late Rev. Leon Sullivan. For decades the building sat unoccupied until purchased by MPDC in 2000.
Reopened in 2005, Hibernian Hall serves as corporate offices for MPDC and houses a number of businesses and non-profit organizations, including Next Street Financial, Friends of the Children, Kelley Chunn & Associates, The Osiris Group and Ethnica Gourmet Catering. Hibernian Hall is also home to Roxbury Center for Arts, featuring a grand ballroom and meeting room.
