Howden house was completed in 1795 and has had many owners throughout its
many years. But in 1964 the Carnegie trust gave a grant of £12,000 to
convert the house from offices into a community centre for the new town. But in
recent years the house has lay unoccupied. Still owned by West Lothian Council.
Every now and again you hear about people possible buying it. But nothing much
has came of it. The most recent rumour is converting it into luxury apartments.
But letís wait and see.
