Historical program on Orphan Train movement set in Wellsville

David A. Howe Public Library 155 N. Main St., Wellsville
WELLSVILLE — Historically, the Orphan Train movement from 1854 to 1929 had a connection to the local area. The Orphan Train was a philanthropic program that removed children from the poverty of the slums and tenements in eastern cities like Boston and New York to foster homes in rural America. Canisteo historian Steve Cotton will talk about the Orphan Train and its connection to the local area at a program at 6:30 p.m. on April 3 at the David A. Howe Library. The public is invited to attend this free event.
