The former Chalmers Memorial Free Church on Chalmers Brae was built in 1891. Closed in 1983, it remained unused until destroyed in a fire in 1991. It was subsequently demolished. © Jim Parker.

Two earlier Free Churches stood on the same site, one built in 1844, and another in 1858. This photo (from Alex Parker's Collection) is probably of the latter. Link.
