NEW JERSEY STATE HOSPITAL AND ST. MICHAEL'S ORPHANAGE
High quality photos of these two institutions are very elusive. In fact, these are the best I could find.
Tom, is there any clue as to the location of the orphanage?
Tom, also of note, one of the folks who followed your site, Joe Zuba, passed away yesterday down in Florida.
The orphanage was located on the east side of Carter
Road just about where the borough of Hopewell line began. There is (or
was) an office building directly across Carter Road that formerly was a
restuarant, just before the Gas Station, and grade school that have been
mainstays at this location. The buildings were torn down some time
back in the 70-80s. I drove past it daily on my way from my farm in Ringoes to my office on Nassau St. in Princeton. If
you are up on Carter Rd. going into Hopewell Borough, you usually will
find a copy sitting in what was the orphanage driveway, waiting to nail
you for exceeding the 25 mph speed limit.
