The building was originally built in the mid-19th century as part of the Hawick Corn Exchange. Following fire damage it was brought back into use in 2007 as the Heritage Hub with alterations and extensions by Gray, Marshall Associates as part of the 'Heart of Hawick' project.
Environmentally-controlled archive building on four floors but three floors generally inaccessible to public. Opening these to visitors during Doors Open Day will give an insight into how we work and the scale of the collections.
Behind-the-scenes (strong room tours) and displays in search room, lobby and meeting room. There will be tours half hourly from 10:00 to 15:30 inclusive.
The HERITAGE HUB will also act as the information centre of the Doors Open Day on Saturday 14 September.
