There is not much out there more heartbreaking than a child with no parents because their parents have passed away. Except for perhaps, children who still have living parents and yet end up in an orphanage. In the state of Montana, many of these orphaned and abandoned children ended up in an orphanage located in the city of Twin Bridges. This was the Montana State Orphan’s Asylum that was also known as Twin Bridges Orphanage and later, the Montana Children’s Center. It opened in 1894 and housed children for 81 years. Today, it is closed and privately owned and is reputedly one of the more haunted locations in the state. Join us as we explore the history and hauntings of the Twin Bridges Orphanage! The Moment in Oddity was suggested by Jenny Lynne Raines and features beetles as clothing decoration and This Month in History features the beginning of the Black Hawk War.
