Category B Listed
Visit the Category B listed Burgh Halls in the historic Burgh of Maryhill. View the original stained glass windows designed by the famous Stephen Adam and learn about the unique heritage of Maryhills industrial and social past.
The iconic stained glass windows offer a glimpse into the past of those who lived and worked in the Maryhill area in the time of Stephen Adam. Maryhill, once an expanse of fields in the Gairbraid Estate quickly grew into a thriving industrial area where families flocked to live and work upon the expansion of the Forth and Clyde Canal. The Burgh Halls, built in 1878 became a social and civic hub of the community, with a bath house, fire station and police station located next door. Join a tour of the Halls where you will learn the story of its refurbishment, a story of progression into the 21st century and celebration of a long lasting heritage.
