Description: Reverse reads: "The Ohio Masonic home. Springfield." This is a photograph of the Ohio Masonic Home, located in Springfield, Ohio. There is a couple sitting on a bench in front of the building. The Ohio Masonic Home currently serves as an assisted living facility to care for elderly Free Masons. The facility also served as a children’s home from 1897 to 1956 in addition to its retirement home. A total of 740 children lived at the home during this time period. It differed from a traditional orphanage as the children came when a parent passed away or couldn’t support them properly. View on Ohio Memory.
