Old Abandoned Building

defunt children's home
We pass this building every once in a while, especially as we are visiting the goodwill stores in the same general area. I like the look of it. I was asking my sister about it and she seems to think it used to be a childrens home. It's abandoned now, but I think I remember when it was still operable.

  1. In my previous job, when I was a contract meter reader for CPS, I used to read the route that included that building. It hadn't been abandoned yet at that time (a few years ago). I think it was being used by some religious organization as a homeless shelter.

    I was under the impression that it was originally built as a seminary, but I could be wrong.

  2. Is this near Culebra & Woodlawn?

    If so, I also think it may have been some sort of shelter for the homeless... I think maybe they were going to move to a location on Blanco, north of I-10, and remember some stories in the paper about the neighbors saying "oh, of course we believe in helping the homeless, but we don't want to lose our property values and have more crime..." Don't recall if the new place ever happened.

  4. My sister remembers that it was a group of sisters that had a shelter. She also says it's by Bandera and woodlawn, by the old Pistol Pete's location in the shopping center, and by the Gonzaba Family Practice on Bandera.

  7. this is not a homeless shelter, or a orphan home, its a rehab that has been around since the 60's, a friend of mines dad use to work there, but the shut the rehab down in the late 1990's early 2000's i have been inside there, there is nothing much in there, just a whole lot of graffiti

  8. It actually did used to be an orphanage (back when they were actually called orphanages) and a halfway house. It has been several different non-profit organizations.

  11. Ive been there before. the place was haunted by an evil demon. There is not enough money in this world to pay me to enter that place again if it was still standing. I had to go and get psy. treatments for five years! that place was the Devils domain!

  13. This was an old orphans home in the 20's and 30's until the 50's. My dad and his brothers spent many years there in the 20's and 30's.
