Throwback Thursday: Children’s Home


The first Children’s Home, on the northwest corner of West Main Street and Nelson Avenue, was built in 1884. Needing more space, a new facility was built in 1902 on Route 68 North (where Faith Baptist Church now stands). The Clinton County Children’s Home closed in 1980.
