(Side Two)
Cultural life of the area was enhanced by the events held at Carnegie Hall until Greenbrier College closed, 1972. The Hall was to be demolished, so the community established Carnegie Hall, Inc. in 1983 and raised over $3 million to renovate and to assure its continuance as an important center of visual and performing arts.
