Beautiful building. Just doing a quick tour of the area and taking a few pictures. If I'm ever back in the area, I'd like to take an actual tour.

“Cute Carnegie Hall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2011

Having lived in Pittsburgh, the Lewisburg Carnegie Hall is of different proportions, but a delight to the eyes. Built in 1902, it eas initially a part of the Lewisburg Female Institute, but now serves as a center of the arts for the region. It has a lovely gilded auditorium with a stage that has seen the likes of symphonies, ballet corps and world reknowned artists and musicians. It also houses painters, weavers, dance studios and reception rooms along with a small museum. It's a rather intimate setting and a pleasure to tour.
