St, Francis Ind. School (later known as St. Francis Vocational School) was founded in 1888 as a home for ophaned boys, usually ages 12-18. It was established by two daughters of a wealthy Phila. financier. Due to economic considerations, the huge, imposing, 4-story brick building was razed. Today, several new group homes occupy a portion of the property and the rest of the acreage, I believe, is for sale. My late father was also a student at the school in the 1920's, and after graduation, stayed on as an instructor in the woodworking department. If you would like a picture of the original building, please contact me.
