The Orphan Train 

The Orphan Train Movement was the largest mass migration of children in American history.  It was the genesis of the modern day foster care system and the brainchild of Charles Loring Brace, a Methodist minister and social activist. The goal was to remove children from urban poverty and transport them to rural communities to become productive members of society in healthy environments. 

Jeanne MacVicar’s presentation of the History of the Orphan Train Movement comes from a lifelong interest in history and personal family history.   Adeline Rousseau arrived in Clyde, Kansas on an Orphan Train on October 11, 1911 at the age of 3.  She was picked out of the group of orphans by Jeanne’s Great Grandfather, George Trowbridge and lived out her life in Clyde with George and wife, Sarah. Come and listen to Jeanne present this fascinating part of our country’s history!
