    The 133 year old buildings have undergone a £9 million+ restoration project, which will breathe new life into the iconic Halls, save them for the community and create a thriving centre for local people and business use.  The building contains 20 stained glass windows designed by Stephen Adam in 1878 depicting the trades of Maryhill.  

    The restoration work began in November 2009. With early funding support from Glasgow City Council, Maryhill Burgh Halls Trust raised the money needed to secure a bright future for the community halls.

    In November 2010, the project was awarded a prize for best contribution to Urban Regeneration in Scotland through the use of European Structural Funds.
