Maryhill Burgh Halls Trust was established in 2004 to bring the Victorian Burgh Halls back into use. The voluntary Board of 10 members raised over £9million to refurbish the Burgh Halls and have continued to manage the building since it reopened in 2012.  Day to day operation of the Burgh Halls and the preservation of the heritage collection, which includes historically important artefacts such as Stephen Adam stained glass, postcards, photographs, medals and archaeological artefacts found during the refurbishment is an important responsibility and would not be possible without the dedication and commitment of the Trust’s Board and volunteers.
