The Dorman Museum opened in 1904, it was given to the town by Sir Arthur Dorman as a memorial to his son who has been killed in the South African War. The building also has a green plaque dedicated to Frank Elgee the curator between 1923 and 1932. The museum itself if full of interesting exhibits and well worth a visit, but I shall only comment on items outside the building.
Other items include an 1884 foundation stone laid by Lady Pease and Middlesbroughs coat of arms.
â€œErimusâ€ is Latin for â€œWe shall beâ€, it is a development of the motto of the Brus family â€œFuimusâ€ meaning â€œWe have beenâ€.
