I dont know about an orphanage in that area, but I do know there was a abandoned and "haunted" school in Spencer. Could be the same thing since rumors always get twisted on down the line. It was torn down a few years ago though. I'll look around and see if I can find anything...

Could he have been talking about the old Wheelock academy at Choctaw? Supposedly there was an orphanage there and the building may still exist.

Ha! I was just thinking about that. The Wheelock Academy is still there and had actually been restored and in use.

asked in MWC Memories FB Group about an old Orphanage, apperntly there used to be one, at the Corner of ne 23rd & Air depot (across Air depot from Crutcho elem) , was told it used to be a boys home but by the time I was growing up (in the 80's) it was a Family Shelter called "The Ark"
they closed down due to flooding issues (the site was really close to the creek)
