The Birkmyre Hostel
The Birkmyre Hostel in Middleton Street, once the house of Sir Archibald Birkmyre, a prominent figure in the jute trade, was given by him to Dr Graham ‘for the children of Kalimpong’ in 1925. It remains the hostel and headquarters in the city of Dr Graham’s Homes at Kalimpong. The Trust hopes to support a programme of necessary and overdue repairs to enable the building to be brought back into full use. Discussions are at an early stage.
