7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Topic:   Orphan Train Riders
Speaker: Tom Riley

Tom Riley is the author of “Happy Valley: A History and a Remembrance” and “Orphan Train Riders”.

Orphan trains, which left from Manhattan with cargoes of children, traveled to many remote corners of the United States, dropping off children at each stop along the way. Some of those children ended up here in Rockland County. 

Come and find out what made these trains necessary; how the young riders fared after being handed over to families at the stations; when did the trains stop. This is a fascinating and largely unknown segment of our history.

GSRC programs and meetings are open to the public.
