Universal Preservation Hall, an arts space inside an historic High Victorian Gothic church building in downtown Saratoga Springs, is about to embark upon a multi-million dollar renovation.  UPH has partnered with Proctors to bring performers to its stage. It will be bringing in a new stage, entrance, elevator, common area, lobby and more.

A fundraising campaign has been launched to turn a 19th-century cathedral in Saratoga Springs  into a hub for the arts.

Universal Preservation Hall, an 1871 Victorian Gothic cathedral a block from Broadway in downtown Saratoga Springs, faced demolition a little more than a decade ago. Now, Proctors Theater and a group of volunteers are beginning a campaign to transform the historic building into an arts and cultural center in the Spa City.
