Orphan Train Map

A partial representation of cities and towns that had orphan train riders placed in them:

Click and drag the map to pan, double-click on the map or use the map controls to zoom.
Click on a map marker to view information about that location, as well as the riders placed there.
Riders’ names with an asterisk (*) denote the person’s adoptive name (as opposed to birth name).
The red lines on the map represent the United States railroads in existence in 1870. This is not a full representation of the location of orphan train riders nor is does it identify all riders. We do hope to continue adding to it over time, however.
