Description
Merlwood State School opened 23 March 1910 with the school's first Head Teacher, Alice Amelia Wilson, being transferred there, as well as the first pupil registrations taking place, on that date. The school closed 22 January 1967 due to low attendance, and the remaining students were transferred to Murgon State School via a School Transport Service. The school buildings were disposed of and the school site auctioned in March 1969.
