The pub is Poole's former main library, built in the late 19th century on a site donated by lord of the manor, Lord Wimborne.
The Free Library was opened by the earl of Ilchester, Lord Lieutenant of Dorset and Poole, while the Schools of Science and Art were opened by Lord Wimborne. He also headed the subscription list to equip the new building, and his mother, Lady Charlotte, also contributed.
