    Louisiana Orphan Train Society Annual Gathering

    The Louisiana Orphan Train Society Annual Gathering reunites orphan train riders and their descendants at the LA Orphan Train Museum in Opelousas, Louisiana. The museum is one of two in the U.S. dedicated to documenting and preserving the story of the Orphan Train Riders who arrived from the New York Foundling Hospital to Louisiana in the late 19th Century. Because of the increasing number of occupants at the hospital, the Sisters of Charity requested assistance from Catholic families in Louisiana, placing more than 2,000 orphaned children in a new home.  

    Since the passing of Mrs. Alice Bernard in 2015, then the only known surviving orphan train rider from New York, members and descendants of the riders still gather in her memory at the annual reunion. There, participants exchange their New York orphan stories in an open mic. While you're there, view some of the artifacts on display and take a tour with Miss Flo.
