Hi Rick,
The exact address for the Lutheran Children's Home was 8138 Harwood Ave, Wauwatosa, WI.
I, too was in the "Home" (as we referred to it) from 1938 until 1945. The Home was demolished in about 1984. Sure am glad my husband took photos of it in 1981. Many of the windows were already boarded up then. There is a retirement home on much of the property that was near the bottom of the hill. Don't know if the current building (where the Home once was) is connected to the retirement home or not. Hope this info helps you. My name and some of my brothers and sister are listed on the 1940 Federal census. The census is not accurate as to ages though. None of our ages were recorded correctly. My name is Marion Wendt. Maiden name Senner.
