Taylor Home / Orphan Asylum never burned down or had a fire ... unless it was in the many fireplaces through out the structure.
It was razed in the early 70s after all the new cottages where built ... the old building was used for cooking, dinning, offices, staff quarters ect., for several years during and after the transition to the cottages.
Its mission changed gradually from orphans and kids from poor broken homes to troubled kids, to kids in trouble or not wanted in the regular schools to a jump off spot to the boys school in Wales for those who wouldn't or couldn't change their ways.
It was myopic and shallow thought processes that led to the destruction of such a beautiful and historic building.
