History:     The property was originally known as the Jury farm. The land was donated by Mr. Jury to construct a Boys Training School. When the Second World War started, the training school was closed and the Prisioner of War camp for high-ranking German officers known as Camp 30 was opened. After the war, the site re-opened as a Boys Training School and stayed that way until 1976. Since then, it been used as a campus for several private schools but sits abandoned at the present time.
