Do you remember when Perry Como performed in the gym?
Perry Como the famous singer, visited the home (sometime in the 1960’s) and sang to the kids gathered around the piano in the gym. Perry gave the children 45’s and they also went to see him at the Allentown Fair. He donated the pool to the home. There was a swimming pond before that, it was a plaster or cemented pond.

  1. Wow Kathy I didn’t know that. It must have been earlier than the 60’s because I graduated from 8th grade in ’64 and the pool was there way before that. It’s sad, the place is still sitting there falling apart with boarded up windows. I would still love to go in with a flashlight and look around the way you did.

  2. Under the ‘Children’ tab, in the section titled “1938-1949”, you need to correct the information for myself and my brother. It should read:

    Chesterton, Lawrence (Lon) and younger sister Rita – Summer of 1947
