Tolbooth Tales: The Story of Law & Order

Lead Partner:
Dumfries & Galloway Council

The Tolbooth is a much-loved building in the middle of Kirkcudbright with a fascinating history. It was once the local jail, at one point holding John Paul Jones, credited as founder of the United States Navy. At present, the buildingโ€™s first floor hosts an art exhibition which will soon move to the new Kirkcudbright galleries. This project will reinvent the Tolbooth building as a Museum of the Law and Order of the Stewartry. The exhibition will explore the 400 year history of the Kirkcudbright Tolbooth and its place in the Stewartry.
