The American Legion Children's Home was established in 1928 as an orphanage for children of veterans who could not provide care for their young. The land, as well as the funds for the first dormitory, were donated by E.W. Marland, Conoco Oil man and past Governor of Oklahoma. The facility now serves as a Home to 62 children, ages 11 - 18. Over the past 80 years we have served children from a wide variety of backgrounds with very diverse needs caused by loss of family, depravity, abuse or neglect. Since opening in 1928, the Home has served approximately 8,000 children and still stands as the one and only American Legion Children's Home in our nation.
