This large red-brick orphanage was built in 1864 with assistance from federal troops occupying the city. It helped relieve the overcrowded orphanages filled with youngsters of all races who had lost their parents to epidemics and the Civil War. The orphanage is now a budget guesthouse, but is not otherwise open to the public.
