... the House of William Chalmers is used as a meeting place for conferences, workshops, seminars, luncheons
and dinner parties.
That’s basically the same purpose to which William Chalmers put it when he lived here 200 years ago. His doors were always open to friends and acquaintances; he hosted delightful dinners, parties and entertainment, as well as serious meetings and deliberations.
In the spirit of William Chalmers’ hospitality, we continue to make his house available to our friends and partners. The will that he completed in 1811 left half of his fortune “to the future establishment of a certain Industrial School for poor children, who has learned to read and write.”
