talk on April 4
For 75 years, more than 12,500 children from New York City, Boston and the New Jersey area made their way to Michigan on what was called the Orphan Train.
On Thursday, April 4, the Romeo Historical Society (RHS) will host a talk about this amazing endeavor at the Arts and Archives Center, located at 290 N. Main Street.
Area expert Arlene Robertson will tell the story of the Orphan Train in Michigan, which ran from 1854 to 1929. Robertson will discuss how this social experiment changed the lives of needy children and the impact it had on Michigan.
The talk will begin at 7 p.m. and refreshments will be served. Admission is free and this general membership meeting is open to all members of the public.
For more information, call the RHS at (586) 752-4111.
