Wilsontown Primary School

wilsontown school

Wilsontown School was opened in 1782 and closed in 1926

On the lintels of the doorways of this ancient house of learning for the edification of all who might pass within its portals, can still be read the two great commands: "Fear God" and "Love thy Neighbour." 

 The school was taken over by the Carnwath Board as late as 1887 and was finally closed around 1926
