1. Carnegie Hall Marker
Inscription.  Carnegie Hall (1919) is the oldest building on Morgan's campus and is named for Scottish American industrialist Andrew Carnegie, who in 1915 made an original and conditional grant of $50,000 for the erection of the central academic building. The conditions of this grant included the purchase of a new site for Morgan College, payment of all outstanding obligations, and the construction of a building that would bear his name. The College met these conditions by purchasing the present site in 1917 and erecting Carnegie Hall in 1919, after receiving an additional gift by Mr. Carnegie of the Carnegie Corporation. The stone used was quarried from the grounds where the building sits by African American quarry men. Carnegie Hall was renovated in 1992. The building is still used today, primarily for offices, laboratories, and classrooms.
 
Erected by Morgan State University.
