Soldier's Orphan's Home, Atchison, Kansas

Two views of the Soldier's Orphan's Home in Atchison, Kansas. In 1887, Kansas opened this facility for children of Union soldiers and sailors. This was the first such facility in the state for children who had lost their parents. At first limited to veterans' children aged five and under, regulations were altered in 1889 to admit all "dependent, neglected or abused children" between the ages of two and 14. The name was changed to the State Orphans' Home in 1909. This home protected orphan children, and gave them a chance to enjoy their childhoods.
