Statement of Interest

Mile End House is one of the few surviving early buildings in an area which was primarily developed in the second half of the 19th century, as Aberdeen began to expand westwards following the introduction of the granite trade and the expansion of the harbour. It is owned by the Aberdeen Soroptimist Housing Society, and was once the home of "Mary Esslemont 1891-1984 GP, Soroptimist and Free Burges of Aberdeen" (plaque on wall).
