I am looking for any information about orphanages that existed in the 1900-1910's in are around St. Louis. My grandfather was rumored to have been adopted.

Thanks so much.

We lived across from St. Ann's Orphanage. I'm sorry I don't know any further information on it at the present.

Where was St. Ann's located? What street was it on?

Thanks for the information. Every little bit helps.

I'm so sorry, but I hit a brick wall, Tammy. I searched, even asked my family in St. Louis. After my sister remembered where St. Ann's Orphanage was, a search showed it doesn't exist there anymore. Good luck and I'm sorry I couldn't help further.

I believe the records of St. Ann's may be with the Salvation Army or Catholic Charities

There was a Methodist Orphanage in St. Louis in the 1920's but I have no other information on it.

St. Louis Orphanages

Missouri Baptist Children's Home was on St. Charles Rock Road in or near St. Ann.

There was a St. Vincent de Paul Home. I believe that it was on Florissant Road in Normandy (north St. Louis County).

Also, there was an orphanage in Fenton MO that was connected to St. John Nepomuk parish in the Soulard neighborhood in south St. Louis. That orphanage is closed. It stood on the property where St. Paul's parish in Fenton stands today.

Hope this helps!!

Thanks, Lillian.
