Mission Statement:

The LA Orphan Train Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to collecting and preserving those items that tell the history of the orphan train riders who came to the area by train from The New York Foundling Hospital between 1854 and 1929 and using this collection to inform and educate the public.
 
It is part of our ongoing mission to seek out the records of Louisiana orphan train riders of whom we are aware.  We continually seek to improve our methods of displaying the artifacts in the museum to make them informative and interesting to visitors.
