Statement of Interest

An undated document ?Rights of Murroes School? in the Guthrie papers states that the present school and school house (presumably this building) was built near the site of a previous school and school house which had become ruinous. The previous building was built in the mid 18th century and was undoubtedly that referred to by Jervise and in a further document in the Guthrie papers ?Extracts from the records of the Session of Murrose?. The interior was not inspected.
