Our Boys' Home was founded by George Edward Ardill's Society for Providing Homes for Neglected Children, after a gift from Mr WH Paling, of Paling's Music Store in Sydney. It was intended as a farm training home and, like other institutions run by George Edward Ardill, such as the Home of Hope for Friendless and Fallen Women, arranged 'apprenticeships' for boys once they had left the home.
The Home closed in 1945 and the building was sold in 1946, later becoming known as Macquarie House.
