November 1st at 11am – The Orphan Train
Poverty, homelessness, overcrowding and other factors among east coast cities led to the transporting of more than 200,000 children to new homes across North America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, including 10,000 to Iowa. While some children were selected by adults who gave them loving homes, others were not as fortunate. Author, Carol Bodensteiner, will share stories of individual orphan train children, as told by either the riders or their descendants—bring this page of our history to life.
