Example text

Before construction of the purpose-built Orphan House in 1794 it was hard to say where the institution was located, as it operated through several buildings and external homes, and it was about as hard to say what it did there. Despite the dispersion of personnel and resources, commissioners wanted the institution to watch over its inmates in every aspect of their lives, great and small. As a result they spent many hours on such details as enumerating appropriate menu items, so that children might be served decent breakfasts (hominy and molasses or mush and butter) and lunch (beef or pork with bread or rice).

The wood came from Bennett’s own lumber company, Cannon and Bennett. The Orphan House opened to 115 children on October 18, 1794. The brick building consisted of a center block, 40 by 40 feet, plus two wings each 65 by 30 feet. Here its function more or less determined its form, with boys generally in the East Wing and girls in the West. Standing four stories tall, the Orphan House was the greatest structure in the City, larger than the Exchange or the Court House. But its charitable purpose called for a lack of ostentatious detail, with only a small cupola for decoration.

The smallest boys, under the age of seven or so, actually lived in the girls’ section of the House until they became of age to move to the boys’ half of the building; the ladies watched for signs of maturity that signaled time for these boys to join their big brothers. The ladies organized girls into sewing teams to produce bespoke goods, a service they advertised to attract “benevolent and humane” customers. The ladies advised commissioners on the wisdom of approving particular applications for admission and for binding out.
