The Eirenion Hall was built in 1897 on the Green Acre property and was used as a lecture hall during the summer lecture series at Green Acre.

'Abdu'l-Baha, son of Baha'u'llah, the prophet-founder of the Baha'i Faith, gave a number of talks here in 1912.

In 1897 the hall hosted the annual meeting of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, and was dedicated to Moses Farmer, father of Sarah Farmer the founder of Green Acre. Moses Farmer invented the electric car.

The Eirenion burned in 1924.
