Provan Hall was originally built as a fortified manor house for the Bishops of Glasgow. It was later used as a residence for a number of wealthy families, including the Baillies, who were Lords Provost of Glasgow. In the 17th century, the hall was abandoned and fell into disrepair.

In the early 20th century, Provan Hall was restored by the Glasgow Corporation. It was used as a museum and community center until the 1980s, when it was closed to the public.

In recent years, Provan Hall has undergone a £2 million restoration project. The project has repaired the building's structure, restored its interior, and created new exhibition spaces. Provan Hall is now open to the public and is used for a variety of events, including weddings, concerts, and community gatherings.

Provan Hall is an important part of Glasgow's history. It is a rare example of a medieval fortified manor house that has survived in relatively good condition. The hall is also a valuable resource for the local community. It provides a space for people to learn about their history and to come together for events and activities.
