Its best known achievement in North Carolina was the orphanage it opened in 1928, the American Children’s Home in Lexington, NC. The Durham Chapter was founded in 1901 and had 250 members by 1912. Although the organization raised initial funds for an orphanage in Durham, the plans were never executed. From Anderson, Jean Bradley.
