Redruth (Cornish language:- Resrudh) is a town and civil parish in Cornwall. It has a population of 12,352 as recorded in the 2001 census. Historically, Redruth was a small market town overshadowed by its neighbours until a boom in the demand for copper ore during the 18th century. The demand for this mineral, required for brass which became vital to the industrial revolution, saw Redruth quickly become among the largest and richest mining areas in Britain. Consequently the town's population increased rapidly, although the wealth sadly by-passed most of the miner's families. The Mining Exchange, still standing today was built in 1880 as a place for the trading of mineral stock. The town's most famous citizen is William Murdoch, (1754-1839) who lived there at least from 1782 to 1798. During this time, he fitted the house he lived in (now Murdoch House) with gas lighting from coal gas which made it the only house in the world with this sort of lighting. Today the town celebrates Murdoch Day each year in June.
