Palmer Orphanage

This is a facility in Mississippi that was founded in 1895.  It started out as an orphanage, but is now Palmer Home for Children, a home that provides long term residential foster care.  The picture is of the original building.  Children stopped living in it during the 70’s when they were moved into large homes/cottages around campus.  It is currently the main office of the home, as well as housing the kitchen and dining room.

I will post pictures of some of the cottages later.
