I live on Chestnut St and have been told by my neighbors that their house (6027 Chestnut St) used to be part of the orphanage or maybe part of the plantation that pre-dates the orphanage? I'm very interested in the history of the area and any photos you may have. They say that their house was moved from the site (around 100 yrs ago) and placed backwards on the street so that the back of their house now faces the street. Would greatly appreciate any help you can give me with my research.
