Preserving the rich heritage of Alford and Donside for future generations

Local Legends

A quick reminder to everyone about the local legends exhibit that has been on display since the beginning of the new season. This is a fascinating exhibition featuring some famous and not so famous people who have become legends in the Alford area. From war heroes to shopkeepers, from ministers of religion to rural ladies, we tell their life stories in this display which is accompanied by an illustrated booklet (£5). Some other famous locals who were already featured in the museum, such as William McCombie of Aberdeen Angus fame, Charles Murray the Alford poet, and Sandy Gray, farmer and highland games athlete are also remembered. Come along and see them and think who you might nominate as your local legend.
