History about the house of William Chalmers

William Chalmers built the house in 1805-1807 but he didn’t have long to enjoy it. He died in 1811 at the age of 63. Shortly before his death, he willed half of his fortune to the Sahlgrenska Hospital and half to the “future establishment of  a certain Industrial School for poor children, who has learned to read and write” – the basis for Chalmers University of Technology.

Nowadays, the House of William Chalmers is used as a meeting place for conferences, workshops, seminars, luncheons and dinner parties.
