I had a first cousin who lived at the Kennedy Home for a few years in the 1950s. It is located just off Highway 70 between La Grange and Kinston. It is still in operation. But many orphanages are very strict about providing information on present or past residents. I'm not aware of any other general orphanage in Lenoir County. The Caswell Center is a state run facility for what was traditionally called "the retarded".
