Old Yankee wealth meets Southern mountain basics in a little gem of a building

We came a distance for a visit to the ground-floor art gallery (one large well-laid out room) for an artist we enjoy. Once there, we visited the third-floor art studio and dance... read more

We came a distance for a visit to the ground-floor art gallery (one large well-laid out room) for an artist we enjoy. Once there, we visited the third-floor art studio and dance studio, chatted with an interesting art instructor, walked through the small concert hall (okay, not NYC but still 400 nice seats), and were intrigued by, and enjoyed, a...

Carnegie Hall was built in 1902 by steel baron and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie as a classroom building for the Lewisburg Female Institute, later the Greenbrier College for Women. Carnegie was friends with the college president and it is 1 of only 4 Carnegie Halls in the world. Looking from Academy Park you see the Ivy Terrace and the beautiful while... More

Was staying at the Greenbrier very close by, so this was a quick trip. Very small building but interesting to see the vintage stage, seating, etc in this functioning concert hall, one of only a few Carnegie Halls in the country (didn't know there were more than one before I visited here).

If you are traveling to the Lewisburg area. Check ahead of time to see if Carnagie Hall has any music or shows available. Sometimes they have lessons. I took "drop in" salsa lessons and had a blast! Just google Carnagie Hall to see their schedule.

Being interested in Carnegie, I was interested in seeing this attraction. Unfortunately, I only saw the building and not a show. The building is a fabulous addition to a town as small as Lewisburg. I recommend seeing this just to see how Carnegie donated his wealth.

Couple years ago saw Kathy Mattea there - it was her Good News Christmas tour - amazing - just like her being in your living room - it's small and perfect for intimate shows. She's a WV girl so we were so excited to see her perform.

Lewisburg has one of only four of these concert halls funded by the legendary millionaire. Set in a park setting, his building is beautiful and the performances within a tribute to the arts.

The best place to see a show! You feel like your sitting in the living room sharing an intimate evening with your favorite group. Beautiful place!

Being in Lewisburg, WV I drove to Carnegie Hall in town. It was not open at the time but the grounds were well kept, the building was well kept.........and just beautiful to look at. I noticed there were play bills up in front of the main entrance listing upcoming events, so the facility is certainly used for what was intended.... More
