Brief History

The first Children’s Home in the State, established by Miss Catharine A. Fay, was located in Lawrence township, at the mouth of Morse run.  This was properly a county institution, and has already been treated of in the county history.  But the play of its management had a local bearing upon the affairs of the township, which makes a brief sketch necessary in this connection.  The Home was opened on the first of April, 1858, with eight boys and one girl, in a temporary, one story building.  On the first of May when school opened, Miss Fay led those of proper age to the public school-house, but the teacher sent them home.  Miss Fay then took the proper legal steps toward having her wards admitted.  Great indignation prevailed throughout the neighborhood, and it was determined if possible to prevent these pauper children from being received into the public school of the district.  When the matron, a second time, took her children to the school, she was confronted by two directors and eleven men, but she was armed with letters of guardianship, and there was no legal way of preventing the execution of her plans.  This conflict inspired throughout the whole township, a deep prejudice against Miss Fay and her institution.  there were some people who supported her enterprise and gave her assistance, by the prevailing sentiment was adverse.

     This conflict has been the subject of much comment, and the people of Lawrence township, to some extent at least, have suffered unjust criticism.  Miss Fay’s work of benevolence was in behalf of the whole county, but the citizens of the township were not disposed to by any way coerced into the support of that work,  The school was maintained by the taxpayers of Lawrence township for the benefit of the people of Lawrence township, and it is but natural that a majority should be averse to education the poor of all the townships.  We are not disposed to expose the cause of either party.  Miss Fay did not receive the support and sympathy from her neighbors which the benevolent character of her work entitled her to.  But there was a course for the unpopularity of her institution, and is but justice that cause should be known.  All occasion for complaint was removed, the second year, by the establishment of a private school.  The scales of prejudice, however, which gather about the eyes of the public, can only be removed by time.

"Washington County Infirmary"                  Return to Top
The Marietta Times,
June 3, 1869

...It was after six o'clock when we left the Infirmary, and, at the request of Esquire Wheeler, we went up the Muskingum river road to the Children's Home. This is now in charge of Dr. S. D. Hart, and his excellent wife. They are assisted by three nurses, a cook, a dining room girl under the direction of the cook, and one seamstress, who is employed through the year, except when work presses, and then two are required. The Doctor himself goes out to work in the fields, and he has one man hired to help him. Eight boys, big enough to be of some use, are set at whatever they can do.

There are fifty four children in the Home at present; the oldest is 14 years of age; the youngest, an infant of seven weeks. There are two other babes, each about a year old. The ages of most of the children range between 2 and 6 years.

Nearly half are illegitimate. Their mothers are not really able to take care of them, or else they are too shiftless and indolent. We were shown through all the rooms, and found everything comfortable, and in order. It was growing dark; the children were collected in what is called a school room; a hymn was sung; prayer was offered by Dr. Hart, and then they began to prepare for bed.

Our little party, at the same time, set about returning to Marietta. We had spent a thoughtful afternoon; first with old people whose lives were destined to end under the clouds, and then with young folk whose lives had begun under a cloud. And yet, neither the aged nor the youthful unfortunates were exactly the most miserable folks we had seen on the earth.
