The legacy of Thomas Nelson Jnr built the hall in 1913 to be used as a place "to which persons of the working class and others can go to sit, read, write, converse and otherwise occupy themselves". With that in mind, the hall has been returned to community use as part of The City of Edinburgh Council's Community Learning and Development section.

The South Side Museum is located in the Gray Room and displays artefacts from the South Side's industrial past, school mementoes and old local photographs.
