SR097 Baptist Orphanage

Description

By 1905, the Baptist Orphanage, which was just a decade old, was caring for 165 orphans. Some were placed in the institution’s care due to loss of parents, while others came to live because their families were impoverished. All needs of the children were met, and all attended schools in Salem.
