National Orphan Train Complex


category : Museums
National Orphan Train Complex Between 1854 and 1929 over 250,000 orphaned, abandoned, and homeless children were relocated from New York and 'placed out' all across the US. The Orphan Train Movement is one of the largest social reform relocation efforts in our nation's history and the beginning of documented foster care in America. It is believed that one in every 25 Americans is somehow connected to an Orphan Train Rider.

The Museum and Research Center are dedicated to the preservation of the stories and artifacts of those who were part of the Orphan Train Movement. A visit to this museum will amaze and touch your heart like no other.
