Orphan Train

Saturday, Apr 19 1:00p to 2:30p

Orphan Train explores a period in American history when government leaders and social welfare agencies shipped orphaned children from east coast cities off to the west, in the hopes of finding them homes. Trains rolled in to towns, children were lined up, and families got chose a child or children they thought would make a good addition to their lives. The motivation ranged from gaining cheap labor, to providing for the needy, to simply adopting a child.
