With financial support from Andrew Carnegie and funds raised by the Greenbrier Valley community, Carnegie Hall was built in 1902 to serve as an auditorium and classroom building for Greenbrier College for Women. From its opening, the college brought to Carnegie Hall performing artists for the enjoyment of the students and community.

After the college closed and the Sate of West Virginia acquired the college property, the prospect of Carnegie Hall being razed was looming. Alarmed, leaders of the community stepped forward in 1983 to buy the building and established Carnegie Hall, Inc., as a not-for-profit organization and dreamed of the regional arts and educational center it is today.

To ensure the future of Carnegie Hall for generations to come, Carnegie Hall Foundation, Inc., was established in 2005 to maintain and preserve the building that has served our region for over 100 years. To accomplish this objective, it is the goal of the Foundation to raise $10 million for a permanent endowment.

In the spirit of cooperation that began with Andrew Carnegie, please join The Carnegie Hall Foundation in our effort to secure the future of Carnegie Hall through your tax-deductible contribution.
