In 1999 the Museum was able to purchase and convert the flat above its existing property. This was achieved with the help of the Heritage Lottery Fund. We now have a light and comfortable research / reading room with facilities for consulting reference material, including:

  • A large collection of old photographs of Dollar people and places
  • Folders of material from past exhibitions
  • Dollar Magazines from 1902 to the present
  • Local reminiscences
  • Old maps
  • Graveyard inscriptions
  • Record of Lairs
  • Valuation Rolls
  • Photographs of the Devon Valley Railway
  • Dollar Foundling
