Dunmore House was opened as a boys' home by Thomas E. Rofe, conference president of the Churches of Christ, on 5 April 1936. Dunmore House was also the name for the historic house that located the boys' home, and dates from the 1880s.
In 1977 the boys were moved out of Dunmore House and into family group homes. At this time there were around 70 children living there.
Dunmore House was then renamed Dunmore House Youth and Child Care Centre, and became a hostel for working boys and students from the country. Around 1981-82, this was closed and the house was used as a private Baptist school.
