I realize the thread to this is several years old...but I happened across it doing some research.
I grew up at the Pythian Home in Clayton, NC. My grandfather was the superintendent.
There was only one residence structure--it is still standing and in use as a business. All other buildings have been demolished.

if you have any questions or would like additional information/detail on the orphanage.
