Mosesfield House - a listed building - stands near the site of the old Mosesfield House
 that was occupied from 1790 by William Moses
a merchant who made his fortune from selling sedan chairs.

The present Mosesfield House was built in 1838 by the architect David Hamilton.

Sir William Arroll financed Arroll-Johnston which produced motor cars for 30 years.

Mosesfield House was presented to Glasgow Corporation in 1904.
