The old Ben Collins home at Third and North Hampton streets, Lock Haven, is seen functioning as the children’s home more than a hundred years ago, in the early 1900s. Most of the children cared for at the home were orphaned by the death of their parents. One name appears on the back of the photo: Carrie Haberstroh. We do not know if she is one of the staff members or once owned this photo which is now in The Express archives. If you have more information about this photo, please contact Wendy Stiver at The Express at 570-748-6791 or wstiver@lockhaven.com.
