Taylor Orphan Asylum-Taylor Avenue Orphanage

My grandmother, Nellie Hamilton Schaffer, was raised at Taylor Orphan Asylum in Racine. She later went back to work at Taylor Avenue Orphanage as Supervisor of girls. Does anyone have stories about the Orphanage back in the late 1800's? Also, if there is any stories about my Grandmother who worked there and retired in 1955? My grandmother's sister Alice and her two brothers, Bill and George were also at the orphanage. Nellie Hamilton Schaffer was born on May 20, 1879. She died in Racine Nov.24, 1981.
