The Woodford Academy, a National Trust Property, is the oldest complex of colonial buildings in the Blue Mountains and is of state heritage significance. Built originally as an Inn in the 1830’s, the property has had a multi-layered history, also operating over the years as a gentleman’s residence, guest house,  boarding house and from 1907-1936 under the ownership of John McManamey as an exclusive school – Woodford Academy.  Bequested to the National Trust in 1979 by John McManamey’s sole surviving daughter Gertrude, the Woodford Academy is today a museum that offers a unique glimpse of colonial life in the Blue Mountains.
