Barshaw House, near Paisley
Barshaw House (now flats), was built by Robert Smith, and later reconstructed by wealthy Paisley businessman James Arthur. After their death, the estate was sold to the Paisley Town Council in 1911, with the park officially opening the following year. The mansion-house was turned into an infirmary and in 1917 it became a military hospital for wounded soldiers. In 1919 the building was returned to the council and was converted to a military hospital. In 1958 it was turned into a home for the elderly.
