The primary auditorium located on the third floor could accommodate 2,000 audience members who sat on "patent opera chairs." Over the years, Case Hall welcomed a variety of speakers including Horace Greeley, Henry Ward Beecher, and Mark Twain. Case Hall also hosted the American Woman Suffrage Association (AWSA) convention on November 24-25, 1869. This convention marked the founding of AWSA. Historically, the American Woman Suffrage Association advocated for state-by-state enfranchisement, while their rival organization, the National Woman Suffrage Association (NWSA), worked for a federal Equal Rights Amendment. Convention delegates from twenty-one states and various suffrage supporters filled the large auditorium in Case Hall. Susan B. Anthony, the Reverend Antoinette Brown Blackwell, Lucy Stone, Julia Ward Howe, and former Clevelander Caroline Severance were also in attendance.
