Historic Hamilton featured on the Daily record’s website today.

Hi Folks,

Today, the Hamilton Advertisers story has featured on the Daily Records website. We are trying to keep the focus on the Mausoleum and keep people talking about it. For our readers here and overseas, can you please click the link and have a read.





Hi folks,


Following on from our pictures of the Mausoleum & Mausoleum Cottage last Sunday, the Hamilton Advertiser contacted Historic Hamilton to help continue their support to save the Mausoleum.


Tomorrow I will be appearing on page 4 of the Advertiser to keep the momentum going and tell everyone what the Mausoleum means to me. I’m sure that the readers of Historic Hamilton who live all around the world will back us and join the fight to stop the Mausoleum fall in to more disrepair.

To become a member of saving the Mausoleum, please visit the groups Facebook page and fill out a membership form. Or get in touch with the man who started the focus on the Mausoleum, Bob Reid. He can be reached on rangerbobreid@gmail.com.


Hamilton boy in Court

The Keepers House in Hamilton.


Hamilton Boy in Court. Hamilton, Saturday 10th September 1922.

A remarkable case was heard in Hamilton J.P. Court to-day—ex-Provost Pollock on the Bench —when a diminutive boy of tender years named James McMillan, residing at Grammar School Square, Hamilton, was charged with hounding a dog on the little daughter -of the caretaker of the Mausoleum.

It was represented on behalf of the accused that he had gone to the Palace grounds along with some companions. They were accompanied on that occasion by a dog which was a bid disposition.

Accused did not think that the animal would do the little girl any harm, and he was not alone in urging it to make an attack. It was more a juvenile prank than anything else, but the unfortunate circumstance was that the girl was badly bitten on the right arm. It was a good thing, added the Fiscal, that the animal had been destroyed. In the circumstances the Justices decided to admonish the accused.
