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.
“Erimus” is Latin for “We shall be”, it is a development of the motto of the Brus family “Fuimus” meaning “We have been”.
