The Hutcheson’s Hospital for tradesmen was constructed in the mid-17th century on Trongate. The infirmary and orphanage was named after its benefactor, George Hutcheson. The original building was demolished after this replacement on Ingram Street was built in 1805 based on the design of David Hamilton. It was extensively remodeled in the late 19th century. Hutcheson’s Hall has served several purposes including the offices of The National Trust for Scotland. If you look closely, you can see statues of George Hutcheson and his brother Thomas in the niches. These were sculpted in 1655 by James Colquhoun.
