In 1710 Baron Bailie Thomas Arbuthnot of Peterhead, who was gifted with an enterprising disposition, initiated the manufacture of kelp on a commercial scale.

The foundation stone of Peterhead Public Library and Arbuthnot Museum was laid by Mrs. Carnegie, on a site on the corner of St.Peter Street and Queen Street, on 8th August 1891. Andrew Carnegie, the Scottish-American industrialist, gave over 1,500 to the building fund. The building cost 5,000 and was opened to the public on 12th October 1893. (Buchan, Jim Postcard).
