Census details

Background information on Dollar, Clackmannanshire, Scotland, - Nineteenth Century Dollar - At the beginning of the 19th century, Dollar’s population was around 500, most houses being concentrated in the Old Town, Upper Mains and Lower Mains. The present Back Road was the main road from Stirling to Kinross.
* Self-sufficient in most trades, the village also had a bleachworks, some small coalmines and a woollen mill. The school was a single-storey house with a low-ceilinged room, 16 feet square.
* Enormous changes followed. The first was the building of the Turnpike Road (now the Main Road), rapidly followed by the building of Dollar Academy in 1818 and the setting out of the New Town. By 1841, the population had increased to 1500. The Old Kirk was too small and the present Parish Church was built. The completion of the Devon Valley Railway in 1871 linked east and west Scotland.
* The first Provost was James Henderson, the local chemist.
