Local Entrepreneur Has Big Dreams for 1219 Military Street

Carol Hall is best known for using her creative skills and fun personality to entertain guests at The Hallway Entertainment. The escape rooms, game show nights, and escape dinners are immersive and unique entertainment experiences for groups looking for a fun activity.

Now she’s focusing on a new project in The Hallway Entertainment’s backyard: the property at 1219 Military Street. Formerly known as Studio 1219, the building was used as an art studio and gallery and run by a nonprofit organization for 15 years.

Carol has been hired by the Community Foundation of St. Clair County to re-imagine the space, and she has big plans. She still wants 1219 Military Street to be a gathering place for local artists, but her dream is to expand the offerings to include music and performing arts, and possibly some digital media arts as well.

The south side of downtown Port Huron has been slower to receive the revitalization efforts seen north of the Black River, but this project hopes to add to the foot traffic and entertainment offerings already happening there.
