Renfrew Town Hall

The newly refurbished Renfrew Town Hall was well worth a visit on Doors Open Day, money very well spent on this landmark building. The photos show the Main Hall and the Lesser Hall and the building is available for hire for weddings and other events. The modernised Renfrew Museum is also housed in this building and some of the displays change regularly.

The memorial stone for this building was laid by Sir Peter Coats in 1864 it was opened for worship the following year. In the 1970’s the colourful glass bricks replaced some of the existing stained glass windows and several items in the church were gifted by the organisations which met there.
