The GAR hall was and still is on Pearl Street. It looks today much as it does in this picture. It is also known as the Bull Mansion and is on Preservations Worcester's list of most endangered properties.

Found the following info at a GAR listing site (02/14/2003): George H. Ward Post 10, built in 1912 Post 10 is a beautiful stone structure in downtown Worcester. It is located about 1/2 block from main business street. No regular hours. A Civil War Roundtable meets in Grand Hall on a regular basis. This is another fine post building and contains many portraits, relics, badges and flags of local regiments. Looks like a great place to visit when in Worcester!

I tried to find this building after visiting this site last year with no luck! Did hear it is not currently opened to the public but would like to see the marble tables of the GAR members inside. Particularly, since this is the Post that Col. Fergus Anzle Easton was a member of.

The G.A.R. Hall has been sold. However, the tablets made of bronze still remain inside the Grand Hall. As for the artifacts, some are on display at the National Guard Museum and at the Worcester Historical Society. I urge anyone who wants to see the artifacts to visit both museums.

http://www.sec.state.ma.us/mhc/mhcpra/praslideshow06/praslideshow06_worcester.html TiNovo (Bull Mansion/G.A.R. Hall) - Worcester The Bull Mansion/G.A.R. Hall Building is a preservation success story. Commissioned by Daniel Wesson in 1876 as a wedding gift for his daughter, renowned architect Calvert Vaux designed the Bull Mansion in the High Victorian Gothic style. The building has a granite exterior and high-pitched roof and dormers. In 1912, the local Grand Army of the Republic chapter purchased the Bull Mansion, adding a meeting hall and banquet hall to the rear of the building. By the 1930s, the G.A.R. chapter transferred ownership to the city of Worcester, because they were unable keep up with the building's maintenance. In 2003, Preservation Worcester placed the mansion on its annual “Most Endangered” list, the building having been nearly vacant for more than 30 years. In 2005, chef Mitch Terricciano, purchased Bull Mansion/G.A.R. Hall to preserve the building and bring upscale dining back to downtown Worcester. Later that same year he opened TiNovo in the historic mansion. The rehabilitation project was completed in three months. The project team integrated a modern full-service restaurant within the confines of a multi-story historic structure with a commercial kitchen, new elevator, dumbwaiter, restrooms, and bars. This project ensures that a superb example of residential design remains intact for the Worcester community.
