The College, by David Rhind, opened in 1855 as Daniel Stewart’s Hospital for 50 destitute boys. In 1870 the Edinburgh Merchant Company turned the Hospital into a fee-paying day school and changed the name to Daniel Stewart’s College. The old courtyard at the north side of the building was eventually roofed over, and reopened in 2007 as a Performing Arts Centre. Additionally, there are other fine rooms such as the Library, formerly the Chapel.
