Andrew Carnegie provided the funds for this hall when his niece was attending college in Lewisburg. It is in fantastic condition and in addition to music performances it has 3 art galleries.

“History abounds!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Oh such memories I have of Carnegie Hall!! As a former student of Greenbrier College and Finishing School I attended many classes and programs in this lovely old building. Carnegie Hall is an lovely Georgian- revival styled building and very much a part of the treasure of the former Greenbrier College and the historic town of Lewisburg. It's wonderful that this building is still being used for productions and concerts!

“Attended many dance recitals here.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Bathrooms not accessible and inconvenient. Seats not very comfortable. But....it is a historic venue so it is kinda to be expected. Great venue for such a small town.

“Carnegie Hall delights!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Carnegie Hall is just another treasure that makes downtown Lewisburg so special. It is a beautiful old building lovingly cared for and it's worth the visit just to see that alone.
