The Lutheran Childrens Friend Society,know locally as the "Kinderheim", was located just west of the intersection of Harwood and Glenview Avenues (US 181) on the north side of the street. I grew up about a block away with my family owning a home there from 1954 to 1998.

The building was demolished about 1970 or so. I can remember they had quite a time taking it down and were operating bulldozers inside the frame to knock out the interior walls.
The present building on the site is an elderly housing complex built in the 1980's

I didn't know anyone who worked there.

Here's a link to the Google Map. Check out the satellite view. It gives you a better feel for the site.
