245. Parmadale Institute

Parmadale Institute also mentioned as the Parmadale Children’s Village of St. Vincent DePaul was founded in 1925. For many years it was an orphanage run by The Sisters of Charity.

Later the facility began to focus on a clientele of children suffering from severe behavioral and emotional issues.

Recent investigation showed that there had been cases involving sexual relationship between children and employees. They used corporal punishment as late as in the 1960’s. One girl died there in 2008, when the facility was a so-called treatment center.

It could not have been fun being there as a teenager.
