Elgin Civics Club hoping to boost interest in local government
Maybe, just maybe, the Elgin Civics Club can do for local government what "Mad Men" did for all things retro -- make it cool again. That's certainly his hope, Elgin City Manager Sean Stegall said, but it has an uphill battle.
Filled with history and still to this day a focal point in Elgin City the building was built in 1224 and was the main church of the bishops of Moray . It was further expanded in 1270 after a fire destroyed it. The cathedral itself is central to the history of Elgin as it was also further altered after an attack in 1390 and 1402. The ruins still carry some evidence of that history and is one of Scotland’s most stunning Gothic cathedral that remains today.
