When the Chemistry Department was displaced by the fire destroying Alden Hall in 1915, Allegheny College became the recipient of Andrew Carnegie's legendary philanthropy through matching-fund gifts to rebuild Alden and erect a state-of-the-art building for the Chemistry Department. Carnegie Hall, which is of course named for Mr. Carnegie, is also built in the style that unified the building projects of that period. The building was completely renovated in 1965 by Stotz, Hess & MacLachlin, at which time stairwells were added at the east and west sides of the building, improving access and safety but disrupting its original silhouette and proportions. To keep this heavily trafficked classroom building up to date, interior spaces continue to be enhanced. In 1991, the building was renovated once again by Hunter, Heiges, Sabo, Douglass, Rogers; and a few years later an interactive, technologically-enhanced learning environment, as well as neuroscience laboratories, were added.
