A Grade II listed building that housed historical treasures is set to become a massage and nail salon.
The building at 81 High Street is part of the Hemel Hempstead Old Town Heritage Trail because it used to be the site of 17th century pub, The Sun.
It was rebuilt in the next century with accommodation for travellers, who stabled their horses in the present day Sun Square.
An artisans’ benefit society, providing a type of health insurance for the working man was founded there in 1775.
More recently it was the home of the Museum of Technology and The Great War and WWII.
A planning application has been submitted requesting permission for change of use from a museum to a massage and nail bar.
A decision is expected to be made at the end of March.
