Fittingly, the building that this Museum resides in, was once the City Barracks. The Architect was Henry Goddard, who was the County Surveyor at that time. It was built in 1857, as a Barracks, Armoury and Store for the Loyal North Lincoln Militia.

The Officers accommodation was within the Barracks. Other ranks lived in nearby Mill Road. These blocks of houses were designed with divided living space for families on the ground floor. The single men slept in a long continuous dormitory on the first floor. The first floors were separated when the houses were no longer required for military personnel.

During October 2013, Michael Denton of Nettleham sent me three photographs that were found by the current owner of "Drummers" (a house on Mill Road - backing onto the Old Barracks). The pictures were given to Michael in 1980, after by a friend after he purchased "Drummers". They are likely to be soldiers of the North Lincoln Militia and in one picture three appear to be playing tenor banjos and melodeon. [Ed.]
