We are delighted to announce the addition of John Duffus' commemorative casket to our collections.
The casket and vellum scroll within were presented to John Duffus in 1927 when he was awarded the Freedom of Cupar, one of only around eight people to ever hold this honour.
We also managed to get the commemorative key that John Duffus received when he donated Duffus Park to the townsfolk in 1911 and the scissors used by his sister, Mrs Gold, when she opened the additional playing fields in 1951.

2016 Displays & Heritage Talks
We've got a fantastic programme lined up for the 2016 season with something for all the family including a fascinating season of talks which you can find listed at the bottom of this page and also here.
2016 marks the 90th anniversary of the building of the Sugar Beet on the outskirts of Cupar in 1926 and we have charted it's rich history from it's construction to the adding of the silo in 1966 to it's closure in 1972 right through to the present day.
Another anniversary for 2016 is Stratheden Hospital which will be turning 150 in July. To celebrate this milestone, we have created a display showing the changes in the purpose of the Hospital and it's role throughout the years.
We will also be having an interactive display of Children's toys throughout the ages with a lot of items we all recognise from our childhood regardless of our ages. There will also be a toy box for everyone to have a play whether you're a big child or a wee one!
The Story of Cupar will also be getting revamped for 2016 telling the tale of Cupar from Pictish times through to the modern day. Look out for our favourite new flying historian - Cuparman - who will be flying through time underneath the main display and visiting some of the eras and buildings throughout history.
