This observatory was erected in 1852 by Scottish baronet Sir William Keith Murray (1801-1861). It included two circular rooms and a transit room. The wooden roofs were designed to revolve on wheels and rails. Telescopes included 13-foot and 7-foot refractors, a transit instrument, and several telescopes and mounts for outside observation (seen at left).
