Carnegie Hall of Moores Hill College, also known as Moores Hill High School, is a historic educational building located at Moores Hill, Dearborn County, Indiana. It was built in 1907, and is a 2 1/2-story, "T"-plan, brick building with Collegiate Gothic and Jacobethan Revival style design elements. It sits on a raised limestone faced basement. The building consists of a central portion flanked by projecting wings bisected by a central bell tower with pyramidal roof. It features a steeply pitched gable roof, parapeted gables, terra cotta trim, and pointed arch openings. The building housed Moores Hill College until 1917, when it moved to Evansville to later become the University of Evansville. It was funded in part by Andrew Carnegie, who donated $18,750 to its construction. It later housed the local high school and elementary school until 1987.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.
