The Grand Theater owns itself, no person owns the Grand. 

A non-profit corporation was formed that holds the deed, the non-profit is run by a board of volunteer directors, we have no paid staff so 100% of all donations go directly to the restoration.

The Grand Theater Restoration Project is run entirely by volunteers.   These volunteers are committed to creating a better future for everyone in Steubenville and the surrounding area as well as bringing the performing arts back to Historic Downtown Steubenville.  Everyone is welcome to join and become a "Friend of the Grand" and get involved in the project. 

Updates and events are posted on our Facebook page, Grand Theater for the Performing Arts Steubenville Ohio, become a fan to see updates as they happen and share your Grand Memories.

Our mission is to save, restore and promote historic downtown Steubenville so that we can all enjoy it's 200+ years of history. From its starting point at Historic Fort Steuben along the Ohio River, to the Mansions on North Fourth Street, shopping its historic storefronts downtown and dancing in the Grand Ballroom at the Fort Steuben Hotel (now apartments). Steubenville has an amazingly rich and diverse history. Everyone living in Steubenville or has ever lived or visited here should enjoy what we have today, and save it for our children to enjoy and have memories of as well.
