ANDREW CARNEGIE FREE LIBRARY
& MUSIC HALL
||Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall
||The Design Alliance
The Andrew Carnegie Free Library and Music Hall was designed by Struthers and Hannah in 1899. It is built on a hill over looking Carnegie’s Main Street. The Italianate façade is composed of russet colored brick with terra cotta trim.
Landau Building Company has been working on the Andrew Carnegie Free Library in phases since 2004. Each phase is contracted as funding becomes available. The restorations to date include the music hall basement, lobby, elevator, façade, roof, windows and also the foundation.
The Captain Thomas Epsy Post No. 153 or the “Civil War Room” will soon be recognized as a national treasure. This room was used as an actual post during the Civil War. Painstaking restoration work has been completed to bring this room back to its original condition.
“So I wanted to write to you to say how grateful we are that the Carnegie Carnegie’s contractor and Construction Manger is Landau Building Company. We are in such good hands.”
Executive Director, Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall
