Crown Hill General Protestant Orphans Home
A Virtual Cemetery created by: Trish Bliss
Description: The Pleasant Run Children's Home got its start in the later 1860s as one of several attempts to help children orphaned by the Civil War. A German fraternal society in Indianapolis, inspired by a similar group in Cincinnati, founded a home for orphans in 1867 under the name Deutschen Allgemeinnen Protestantischen Waisenvereins (German General Protestant Orphan Association). In 1871 the association opened a permanent home for the orphanage on State Street near Pleasant Run; it was used for over a century, and is still standing. The building usually accommodated about fifty children. In 1918 the association changed its official language from German to English, and its name to the General Protestant Orphan Association.
