I took a photo of the old orphanage in Marquette almost ten years ago way back when I started Lost In Michigan. Holy Family Orphanage was constructed in 1915 and was used until 1967. It was home to children ranging from infants to high schoolers. It was also where Native American children were brought after being removed from their families to be “integrated” into white Christian culture.
The old building had sat empty for decades and some claimed it was haunted. In 2016 the old orphanage got a new lease on life after a 15 million dollar renovation converted it into apartments. I have taken a lot of pics of old buildings over the years and many of them have been torn down. It is nice to see this one has been renovated and repurposed.
