Throughout is history Stewarton has been known for its bonnets, the production of Scottish speciality Dunlop cheese, and for its association with the Burns family. Stewarton had established its reputation as a major player in textiles long before the Industrial Revolution, as it was already a prolific producer of traditional Scottish bonnets in the 1400s. Advancements in technology during the 1800s led to the trade becoming increasingly industrialised, with the introduction of powered knitting machines and the installation of a gas works in the area, which meant weavers could continue working at night with the aid of artificial light.
Stewarton had a feature that was completely unique for industrial towns at the time-there were no inns in the town at all up until 1930, as the residents had decided by common consensus to keep the town an alcohol-free zone to increase productivity. Whilst the rest of the village were busy weaving, the uncle of Robert Burns, who died in Stewarton, was helping to guard the church’s graveyard from body snatchers, a practice that was rife in the area at the time. In recognition of this the Stewarton Literary Society established a monument in the town in his honour.
