[ARCHIVED] Orphan Train

On Saturday, July 10th at 2 pm, the lovely and talented professional storyteller, Pippa White, reenacts the history of the Orphan Train.

How many orphans were riders on the trains? At least 200,000, but maybe as many as 500,000. Fending for themselves on the streets of New York, homeless children were given a chance for a new life in America’s heartland by riding the orphan train. Orphans who remember the experience come to life through Pippa White, and share a heartrending and forgotten part of history. Come and bring the whole family to experience the riveting performance of this special lady.
