Program: Orphan Train

Over 250,000 children from just months old to teenagers made the journey west to 45 states, Canada, and Mexico (also Ponca City) from 1854to 1929 when orphanages and shelters were established.  Some of their stories have wonderful endings, but others are heartbreaking. Concordia KS Orphan Train Museum wants to preserve these Stories.
