Come and see Milngavie’s heritage brought to life

Old Milngavie will be in the spotlight thanks to two forthcoming exhibitions staged by the town’s heritage centre volunteers.

The first is called The History of Milngavie Railway Station and commemorates 150 years of the railway in Milngavie.

This exhibition traces the changes that have been made over the years.

It charts the railway’s development from the steam service which was started by the Glasgow and Milngavie Junction Railway in the 1860s.

The story is then developed and looks at the electric Blue trains of the 1960s to the present day.

The second exhibition, entitled Clubbable Milngavie, is a look at the activities of 16 local organisations, covering a wide spectrum of interests such as gardening, music, philately, chess, family history, the civic trust and the rotary movement.

Both exhibitions will run at the same time at Milngavie Town Hall old court rooms from 10am - 4pm on Tuesday, September 10 until Saturday the 14th.

There will also be a short talks at noon, 1 and 4pm on most days during the week.

Both of these exhibitions are free and it is hoped that visitors will get some understanding of the rich and varied history which is right on their doorstep.
