The present Methodist Children's Home at 3715 Jamieson Avenue, was founded in Warrenton, Missouri, in 1864 as a refuge for orphans who were displaced by the Civil War. It later moved to St. Louis and occupied the former Cupples Mansion on Maryland Avenue near Newstead. It was also located on Waterman near DeBaliviere Avenue before occupying its present quarters in 1951.
