ActivityBon Accord Square and Crescent were built by John Smith and Archibald Simpson, Aberdeen’s City Architects, from around 1823 to the 1830s. They are situated to the south of the west end of Union Street, Aberdeen’s main street, and form a wealthy residential area in which some businesses such as advocates’ firms and accountants have also found a foothold. Aberdeen Business Women's Club and the United Services Club were also in the area. The influential inhabitants of these and the neighbouring streets of East and West Craibstone Streets have acted together to control and improve the area in a formal association at least since the early twentieth century, seeing to the maintenance of roads and gardens and, in the Second World War, forming their own fire watching committee.
