Perth Girl’s Orphanage
Year Opened: 1868
Year Closed: 1942
Perth Girls’ Orphanage was established as the ‘Protestant Orphanage’ in 1868 with 8 children, including one boy. It operated in a building near the Causeway, for children of all denominations aged 2-14 years. Children who were not orphans were also admitted. In 1882 the Home moved west up Adelaide Terrace. The Home was run by the The Committee until 1889, the Orphanages’ Committee until 1939 and the Anglican Orphanages Board of Management until it closed. The premises were evacuated in 1942 and the Home became part of Swan Homes in Middle Swan.
