Blackwood was opened as part of the Burnside Presbyterian Orphan Homes in August 1921 at North Parramatta. Blackwood, like the other Burnside Presbyterian Orphan Homes for Children, was evacuated during World War II. Blackwood was used by the Australian Army. It was a boys' home and a cottage home until 1984. Blackwood was leased to Redeemer Baptist School in 1984 then sold to the school in 1994.

Details

The first boys at Blackwood were from Dunkeld, another Burnside home.
