Bishop Horden Hall (Moose Factory)

 -  1906 -1976

Religious Entity: Anglican

Anglican missionaries established a boarding school at Moose Island on Hudson Bay in the 1850s. In 1905 the Bishop of Moosonee converted his former residence into a residential school. In 1914 that school (named Bishop’s school) was destroyed by fired and replaced with the Moose Fort school. A new building, named Bishop Horden Hall, was built in 1953. In the 1960s the classroom operations of the school were merged with those of the local public school, and the school was renamed the Horden Hall Student Residence. The federal government took over the administration of the school in 1969 and closed the Horden Hall Student Residence in 1976.
