Guardian Home

The Marion County Children's Guardian Home opened in Irvington in the 1890s as part of the Progressive Era in American history. Endangered, homeless, abandoned, and neglected children called Irvington home for over one hundred years. The institution recently closed and is now a charter school. Here is a postcard sent by "Roy" to his brother Clarence Carpenter who was living the home in December of 1913.
