Carnegie Hall was built in 1902 with funds donated by steel baron and philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie. Carnegie Hall, Inc. was established in 1983 as a regional, not-for-profit arts and education center to serve Southern West Virginia. The historic, Greek-revival structure houses an auditorium, studios for painting, weaving, pottery and dance; three art galleries; kitchen; administrative offices; and several other rooms used for meeting spaces, classrooms, lectures, receptions, and gatherings of all kinds.

This is a such a quaint little town in WV. I had the opportunity to see a show at the Carnagie Hall here and it was outstanding. The theatre is beautiful with a bar inside to bring drinks in while enjoying the show. While in Lewisburg, be sure to check out the Irish Pub and Food and Friends for dinner.... More

Interesting to see one of three Carnegie Halls donated by Andrew Carnegie and think of one them being in the small historical setting in Lewisburg, WV on the campus of the former girls college, Greenbrier College. Neat setting and a beautiful structure which is used for many purposes, such as concerts, weddings, music of all genre and the arts. Right... More

Wonderful spirit of renewal here, matched by great talent lineups not really expected for a somewhat rural town. Seats are comfortable, and something in the Hall will have been upgraded each time you come. Local crafts and works of art always on display in a side room off the auditorium.. worth stopping by. The Hall seems to symbolize Lewisburg's pride... More

Carnegie presents a wide range of touring performers, with a good sound system and friendly combination of staff and volunteers greeting, pouring wine, offering CDs for sale and welcoming the audiences, which are a mix of us locals and lots of visitors. I have been to dozens of shows here, and often go into the lounge. Various community businesses and... More

I have never been so shocked and abhorred by the conduct of the so-called staff of this venue. Rude and shameful...you are not allowed to talk, clap, stand, or do anything at their so-called concerts except sit like mannequins. The special room you pay extra for is supposed to be for reception (food and wine), yet there are no tables... More

We are terribly sorry that you had such a negative experience here at Carnegie Hall. Our staff and volunteers work diligently to provide patrons with quality customer service and entertainment. It takes many staff and volunteers to prepare the house for a Mainstage event, such as the one you attended. Timeliness is of the utmost importance; however, the house cannot... More

I visited during the day time and attended no concert or performance but still enjoyed my time there. It's small but the grounds are beautiful and it doesn't cost anything to see the art on display inside. I recommend visiting even if nothing is going on. It's simply a nice place to tour and take a leisurely stroll.

Went on a Saturday afternoon when there was not anything going on. You go in the basement and they have local artwork on display that can also be purchased. You can then go upstairs and tour at your leisure. Looking forward to visiting when they are having a performance.

My wife and I attended the Dave Mason concert here last night and were pleasantly surprised. Although it is a small venue, the acoustics and atmosphere were outstanding. We had front row seats and were only 15 feet from the band. Very friendly staff and very easy to get in and out. I hope to attend future shows at this... More

One of my favorite venues around. Great sound quality, really stellar acts for a town as small as Lewisburg, all in an absolutely beautiful setting.

We've been to Carnegie Hall in Lewisburg several times. The space is intimate, the sound is consistently good, and they have a pretty interesting selection of artists. But the balcony is something of a visual disaster, with little raking and large poles that obscure the view of the stage. Whatever you do, sit on the main floor.
