Inverness Public Library
Farraline Park, an impressive Grecian style building, was built 1841 as a school (also known as Bell’s institution). During building work for this in 1840, nine complete, irregularly laid out skeletons were uncovered. The dates for these skeletons are uncertain, but the site of the building was clearly reusing an unknown grave site prior to being a school. Imagine the scary stories the children probably told each other about the school being haunted!
The school was closed in 1937 but eventually reopened as the public library in 1980. From grave site to school to library!
