Chomley Turner, nephew of Sir William Turner built this school at a cost of £1000 in 1709 thought to be designed by Robert Hooke (although Wikipedia says he died in 1703). It remained a school until 1864 when that moved to Coatham Road in Redcar.
The building was later used for convalescing soldiers in World War 1.

It opened as the Old Hall museum (even though it was never the home of the squire) in 1981.
