Miller Symphony Hall

ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

A familiar face has a new name. Saturday night saw Allentown leaders re-name the city's Symphony Hall.

It's now called "Miller Hall", named after the family that saved the building from the wrecking ball in the late 1950s.

"That's why you see the Wells Fargo Center or Verizon Hall," said Shiela Evans of the Symphony. "That's a condition of doing business. But with the Miller family, they've never asked for anything."

The new logo features the building's iconic top-floor windows.
