The estate belonged to Benjamin Hird in the late 18th Century. 
By 1838 the house was used as a boys boarding school by Joseph Riley and his son John. 
Harrison Milligan was in residence in 1861, his widow was still living there in 1915. Rawdon Littlemoor School utilized the building as a senior department between 1951-1957. 
The house was demolished and the present Benton Park School built on the site, opening in 1960.
