State Public School Owatonna, Minnesota : Established in 1886 the Minnesota State Public School for Dependant and Neglected Children was a place over 10,000 children called "home", until 1945 when the facility was phased out.  This gallery contains photos of various items the children had at the school; which is now been preserved in the school museum.  The children lived in cottages around the main building, each had 25-35 children and a matron.  Children learned "habit of industry" as well as being educated "morally and mentally".  I really enjoyed my visit to this place and I plan to return again in the spring and summer.
