The Oklahoma Territorial Museum, located at 406 E Oklahoma Ave Guthrie, Ok will host Riders on the Orphan Train program on July 15, 2014. This one-and-a-half-hour multi-media presentation tells the story of the 250,000 orphans and unwanted children who were put on trains in New York between 1854 and 1929 and sent all over the United States to be given away. The presentation is comprised of original music, an audio-visual presentation of archival photographs and interviews with two surviving orphan train riders (a man who came to Berryville, AR and a woman who came to Greenville, TX) and is followed by a dramatic recitation from the new novel "Riders on the Orphan Train" by Alison Moore.
