dc.description The Haskell Home for Orphans on Hubbard Street sat on 117 acres just outside Battle Creek's northwest city limits. It was owned by the Seventh-day Adventist Benevolent Association and opened in 1894. Caroline E. Haskell, a Sanitarium visitor from Chicago, donated $30,000 to build the orphanage on the condition that it be named for her deceased husband — the Adventists had intended to name the home in memory of Elder James White. The orphanage burned on Feb. 5, 1909, and three children perished. The orphanage operated until 1922. (Photographs submitted by Floyd C. Dean of Albion.) en_US
