Beginning as a land surveyor and architect, Rice would later go on to perform inspections of the more densely populated, poverty-stricken areas of Liskeard where he would detail his finding in Nuisance books. This allowed him to bring piped water and a proper sewer system to the town. Rice designed many buildings in Liskeard even Foresters hall, the building that would develop into this museum.
The Henry Rice Room currently contains our 50s and 60s exhibition. This display holds lots of memories for those who grew up during these decades, with household objects and personal items.
