Carmarthenshire landmark Furnace House celebrates 250 years

Residents of Carmarthenshire are being invited to share their memories of one of the county’s landmark buildings.

The Library building, formerly known as Furnace House, was built in 1761 for the Morgan family, who founded the Carmarthenshire Furnace in 1747. However, as a result of decades of wear and tear, the building was near demolition by 1972.

Furnace House has undergone a full rebuild, which saw Carmarthen Library move in upon its completion. Thousands of pounds have been invested in the library building since.

Local people are now being asked to share their memories of the library, including the library in its various locations around Carmarthenshire, such as Spilman Street.
