The former United Methodist Children’s Home (now Legacy Park) is the subject of a new exhibit at the DeKalb History Center in Decatur’s historic Courthouse on the Square. Join us for this Opening Reception, Thursday, August 31, 5:30-7:30pm.
Historic and contemporary photographs will provide glimpses into the Home, while first hand oral histories from past residents, employees, and volunteers detail life in the “Orphan’s Home” from 1943 to 2017.
This fascinating history was documented through interviews and photography by Beate Sass with interview assistance from Moira Bucciarelli.
