    Rail Yard Talks:
    Riding the Orphan Train

    Join us for our Rail Yard Talks series. This month we are pleased to present Riding the Orphan Train, presented by Dr. Rudy Daniels.

    The Orphan Train Movement was a supervised welfare program that transported orphaned and homeless children from crowded Eastern cities of the United States to foster homes located largely in rural areas of the Midwest. The orphan trains operated between 1854 and 1929, relocating about 200,000 orphaned, abandoned, or homeless children.
