Boys residing at the Children’s Home of Jefferson County listen to a bedtime story in this photo from a booklet titled ‘Centennial of Children’s Home of Jefferson County, 1859-1959’ by David F. Lane. The booklet notes that most of the residents had at least one living parent and says the facility’s aim is to raise the children ‘as individuals rather than mass-produced like so many soulless automobiles over an assembly line to conform to a single molded pattern.’ The Children’s Home still operates its residential facility on State Street in Watertown and provides many other community services.
