This building opened in 1842 and cost £2,400 to build this money was raised by donations and the sale of 3000 shares at £1 each. These shares could be paid for at a rate of 6d a week for 40 weeks. The building was built on the corner of what are now Lower Loveday St and Princip St.
The building was supposed to cater for the betterment of the working man and contained a lecture and exhibition hall, bathrooms, kitchen and a library in fact everything needed for the improvement of the working class.

Oddly or some may say obviously the hall was not a success, and closed a few years after it opened. One reason given for its closure was “Being the excessive distance from the town centre” though in those days when most people walked everywhere that’s a pretty poor excuse.

There is some doubt as to if the building ever looked as it does in the drawing or if there was not more than a little artistic licence taken. The second photo of the building is taken many years later when it had been much altered and was being used as a factory.
