St. Joseph’s Orphanage, Abilene KS

Entrance to St. Joseph’s Orphanage that provided a home to children from 1915-1959.





Here is a link (Dickinson County Historical Society) to see a photo of the orphanage that was demolished in 1959.  All that is left on the site are the stone markers at the entrance, a building and the unique grotto.

      Thanks Caz, good to hear from you! Just load up Blue and head out, they make the best travel companions. We live in a beautiful State, I love exploring the back roads!!
      I have an Olympus with 4 different lenses, but the camera I use the most is a Sony Cybershot. I usually have Wylie in my arms because of all the snakes we encounter, so it’s easier to use a camera that only requires 1 hand to focus and shoot!
      Be sure to “follow” my blog! Never know what we will find!
