Founded in 1953, the Society moved into 15 Victoria Terrace in 1991.  The internal walls of the property are from two phases of building: vaulted arches dating from c. 1830-1840, and the cellars of tenements on Johnston Terrace in 1868-9.  The building was used as an ARP centre during WWII, and has been occupied by a confectionery manufacturer, a scientific equipment supplier, a pottery & printmaking studio and a restaurant prior to becoming home to The Scottish Genealogy Society.
