|John Muir was born in Dunbar on 21st April 1838 and his first home is now the John Muir Birthplace, a museum and visitor centre located on Dunbar High Street in South East Scotland. John was a pioneer of the modern conservation movement and is remembered as the father of the national parks movement. From 1892 to 1914 he was the founding President of the Sierra Club, now the largest conservation organisation in the world. He was a prolific writer and his books are rarely long out of print. His writings and his message continue to inspire.
|126 High Street Dunbar is a typical Scottish tenement building. It was originally built between 1775 and 1789 as a rental property with three flats and a stairwell that leads to a small courtyard with a coalhouse and midden (waste heap). The exterior walls are of sandstone rubble (much has been repaired with brick) covered with pebbledash (formerly lime harling or render). It is likely that for much of its life layers of lime-wash would have been used to protect the outside rather than paint. In 2013, CyArk collaborated with Scottish National Heritage, Historic Scotland, and the US National Park Service to scan the site using a Leica C10. The project represented an effort to introduce Scots and Americans to each other’s historic sites and celebrate the life of John Muir.
