Description:  The United Children's Christian Home was founded in 1873.  The current campus has 99 acres with 30 buildings built between 1903 and 1998.  Our tour will include the interior and exterior of the beauiful Moore Chapel, constructed in 1906.  We will also explore the grounds and walk by some other historic buildings and several "cottages" which house the students.  School will be in session, so access for many buildings will be limited.  The campus has a very low density; as a result you can anticipate walking a good bit more than we do on our normal tours.  The entire campus is currently for sale.  This may be your last opportunity to tour this historic property.
