Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum


By Dunfermline.info - Sat, 12th Jan 2008

The Andrew Carnegie Birthplace in Dunfermline is the cradle of the `Star- Spangled Scotchman`, the emigrant weaver`s son who forged a fortune in the steel furnaces of America and spent the rest of his life giving it all away.
Here in the Birthplace Memorial Hall endowed by his widow, Mrs Louise Whitfield Carnegie, are housed the treasures showered by a grateful world on the man of steel with a heart of gold.

The two-story weaver`s cottage where Andrew Carnegie was born on 25th November, 1835, is situated at the corner of Moodie Street and Priory Lane and within sound of the bells of the venerable Dunfermline Abbey, the Westminster of Scotland and burial place of Scottish kings.
