Nov 16, 2017 PROGRAM:‘Placed Out: Orphan Trains for Eastern Cities’ Deluge of “Street Arabs”‘ with Sharon Danhauer at Council Tree Library - 6:30-8:30pm
Sharon will tell us about the Christian organizations in the 1800’s that were established to place urban street urchins, often immigrant children, in adoptive and foster homes in the West. Over 150,000 children were placed out in several western states over the 75 years the system was in operation. Colorado received 1,500 Orphan Train riders, who now have thousands of descendants.
