This building was built in 1915 but was abandoned in mid-60s after serving as a Catholic orphanage. Occupants of the orphanage have reported incidences of nuns mentally and physically abusing children. In one account, a girl caught pneumonia after laying outside during a storm and ended dying several days later. In an effort to warn other children to not act foolish, her body was placed on display for all to view by the nuns.

It is believed the apparitions of some of the children continue to exist. There have been reports of crying children heard when passing the property at night.
