History

The museum is located in an Art Nouveau building in the middle of the town which was originally a Carnegie library. The library was opened in 1904 and designed by George Pennington. In the 1970s a new library was built and the Carnegie building was converted into a museum. It retains a tiled entrance hall and original 1904 furnishings.
