    A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION honoring Carnegie Hall in Moores Hill, Indiana, on its 100th anniversary.

    Whereas, Carnegie Hall was built in 1907 as a part of Moores Hill College. It was named in honor of industrialist Andrew Carnegie, whose matching grant made construction of the great hall possible;

    Whereas, Carnegie Hall incorporates Collegiate Gothic architecture and has been described by knowledgeable observers as one of the finest examples of that style in southeastern Indiana;

    Whereas, Carnegie Hall served as the first home of Moores Hill College. This was the second college in Indiana to open its doors to women and awarded 487 degrees in its 61 years of operation;

    Whereas, in the years after Moores Hill College moved to Evansville, Carnegie Hall served the community as a high school and later a grade school. At present, the building houses a museum, a library, and a new genealogy room;

    Whereas, Carnegie Hall plays host to many activities in Moores Hill, including weekly bingo, Head Start classes, Girl Scout and Brownie Troop meetings, yard sales, and Thanksgiving Dinner; and



    Whereas, as the Moores Hill community recognizes the 100th anniversary of the building, all those who have worked for its preservation, including the Carnegie Historic Landmarks Preservation Society, are remembered: Therefore,


Be it resolved by the Senate     of the General Assembly

of the State of Indiana, the House of Representatives     concurring:


    SECTION 1. That the Indiana General Assembly recognizes and celebrates the 100th anniversary of Carnegie Hall in Moores Hill, Indiana.
    SECTION 2. The Secretary of the Senate is hereby directed to transmit a copy of this Resolution to Janice Slater, President of the Carnegie Hall Museum.
