 +{{:​orphanage.jpg|orphanage.jpg}}Before the establishment of an orphanage, the county'​s orphans were placed in a wing of the County Farm, among the indigent poor, homeless, and "​idiots."​ The Orphan'​s Asylum was established in 1859 at the behest of a "Miss Frazier,"​ who moved to adopt all of the orphans from their neglected conditions and berated the city council about the need for a proper orphanage. Almost overnight, the Orphan'​s Asylum was created on Franklin Street.
