This inspiring building was commissioned in 1860 by Louisa Anne, Marchioness of Waterford, and owner of Ford Estate. It was the village school until 1957 and in its heyday had as many as 134 local children in attendance. To aid them in their learning, Louisa spent 21 years painting the Biblical watercolour murals that now adorn the walls of the Hall.
Today, the Hall is open to the public as a museum telling the story of this unique village and of the remarkable lady who created it.
