Our first in a series of image sequences from the streets of Cornwall. Nazareth Orphanage operated out of the former McMartin house (Highland Manor) on the site of today’s Cornwall Public Library; it was their third location. The building was donated by the widow Mrs. John McMartin in memory of her late husband. The orphanage succumbed to fire on May 4, 1950.
