‘Orphan Trains’ presentation @ Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library
Sep 27 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

SHERIDAN—Few people today know much about the largest child migration in history. Between 1854 and 1929 more than 250,000 orphans and unwanted children were taken out of New York City and given away at train stations across America. Organized by Rev. Charles Brace to rid New York City of homeless street children and provide them with a chance to find new homes, this nearly 80 year experiment in child migration is filled with horror stories and happy endings. Sheridan Fulmer Library will host “Riders on the Orphan Trains”, the official outreach program of the National Orphan Train Complex, at 11 a.m. on Saturday in the Inner Circle. There will be a one hour presentation including music and photos. The library is located at 335 W. Alger St. For more information, contact Christina Schmidt at 674-8585 ext. 29.
