What was an Orphan Train? Who rode them? Why were they used? When did it all start and when did it end? Dan Bean will answer these questions and others as he reviews how he became a Vermonter because of one such train. The discussion will also cover other OTR descendants and their fates. If you’ve ever read a novel or book on Orphan Train Riders and wanted more information this is your opportunity. If you have never heard of these trains come and learn about a fascinating bit of our past.
