St. Joseph Apartments

Originally dedicated as the St. Joseph's Orphanage on July 20, 1924, the orphanage served as a home for hundreds of children for 40 years.

In 1978 the orphanage was renovated into St. Joseph Apartments, an apartment complex which provides low income housing for the elderly and/or those with a mobility impairment needing an accessible place to live. St. Joseph is on a bus line and close to several shopping areas, medical facilities and places of worship.
