The Institute Building was built in 1884, the main aim of which was to meet the educational and cultural needs of the folk. There was a reading room and library on the ground floor, a lecture theatre on the second floor and an art room on the third. There were two shops at street level, in order to generate rent to cover the maintenance costs of the building.

In 1912, the Institute was expanded to create a council chamber on the first floor.

In the cellar, there were the town's public baths, and they were in use as recently as the 1960s. There are a number of relics and pictures of value in the building.
