John, you really need to learn how to spell, your spelling is atrocious ! My father was assistant director of Ormsby for 4 years in the early 70's, and YES there were juvenile criminals at Ormsby. I lived on the grounds of Ormsby with my family and we were around these troubled criminals everyday! Please get your facts straight, because you really don't know as much about Ormsby as you think you do.

Hi. My grandfather lived at Ormsby Village briefly from around 1933-1935. He was only 2 years old when he was taken in, then adopted. Anyone know where to get records from Ormsby Village?

My family moved to Ormsby Village in 1955 when I was 2 1/2 and my brother was 4. My father was Assistant Director and eventually became Director. We lived in the mansion house for 12 years. There was a working farm which provided food for the resident kids. So many things. I loved it there.
The house is still there, altho when I saw in '95 or '96, it was in pitiful shape. I hope it's being kept up now. There is also a group of pine trees that we planted. They were live Christmas trees.
There were never any ghosts. My brother and I played all over that house, including the attic and the basement (which was creepy, indeed).
There are hours of stories I could tell. Getting chased by cows, waking to the sound of trains and cattle lowing. Sledding down the hill. Watching my father hold sunrise services on the front lawn on Easter morning. More and more and more.

Do yo remember Ms. Etta Kays also do you know if there was an air plane that the kids would learn to work on? I REMBER one. I also swam ate and spent nights at the cottage. Ms. Etta Kays was my aunt.
