Beith Cultural & Heritage Society were founded in 2006 with the aim of preserving memories and artefacts from the town of Beith and nearby villages and hamlets of Gateside, Barrmill, Greenhills, Burnhouse, Hessilhead, Longbar and the Den.
Since 2010 the society have leased the historic Beith Townhouse from the local authority. Built by public subscription in 1817, the Grade B listed building occupies a prominent position in the town centre.
The project to restore the Townhouse as a heritage and local information centre is still ongoing, with a further approximately £70,000 required before the whole building is renovated.
Regular exhibitions on a local theme are displayed in the Townhouse. Recent topics have included World War 1, Beith furniture industry and education.
The centre is open Tuesday & Thursday: 10 am to 4 pm and Friday & Saturday: 10 am to 1 pm.
