My sister and I also lived there, and they moved to a new campus while we were there, around 1969-70 I believe. It is now called Thompson Children's Home. The old campus where is now the site of a chapel. Hope this helps.
I am curious what your memories of the place are like. Which cottage were you in? My email is whitetree@peacemail.com.

If you will go to Thompsoncff.org and click on the picture in the upper right hand corner of the children, you can see what Thompson is like now and learn how it was back in the day when it was on 4th Street, Charlotte.

My two sisters and I went to Thompson November 2, 1945. At first, like all children, I wanted to go home. I resented being there and when my mother found out I was unhappy, she wrote me and said she guessed I would always be unhappy like her. Something clicked in my head and I said to my self "No I won't and if I straihgten up I would have a chance to make something out of my life." After that I started thinking of all the good things before me. I stopped being resentful. I came to love Thompson and all the people in it. I thank God for watching over me and putting me in a place that gave me a chance in life, that I would other wise not have had. Yes ORPHANAGES ARE A BLESSING. I am so happy my sisters and I were not separated and put in foster homes that could not have possibly done for us what Thompson did
to make us the women we became.

I think I know you. I lived in the same cottage, and my sister was with me. In fact, aren't you the one who loved Paul Revere and the Raiders and "introduced" me to Bobby Sherman?

My current email is jemtallant@gmail.com.

My name is Barry Treadwell. I am trying to location a boy I was in Korea with in 1971-72.
His name was James Dixon and at one time he live there at Thompson. He was a really funny
Guy and was always telling stories about the place. I know he was adopted by the sheriff of
Charlotte NC. By chance did you know him and would you have any idea how I could find him.

Sherry, I remember you during the time I lived there. I was on on Christ Church Cottage at the time. My name is Jennifer and my sister and I both lived there. Do you remember me? I am trying to arrange a lunch with ladies from my cottage, but anyone I know personally would be a pleasure to see again. It would have to be planned well in advance because I live in another state and would have to travel there. Send me note!

Hi Denise,

Were you on Christ Church cottage? You sound familiar to me, perhaps you were even my roommate for awhile. My name is Jennifer. Does that ring a bell? I recall other girls named Kathy, Donna, Anna, Kim, Rachel, Blair.

Send me a note if you would like to meet with other ladies from our cottage sometime for lunch.
