A stunning documentary video which captures the personal stories of past State School wards, family members, and staff.
They were called "State Schoolers." There were 10,635 of them between 1886 and 1945. Kids orphaned...or abandoned...or abused and sent to Owatonna, home of the Minnesota State Public School for dependent and Neglected Children. This documentary film is a story of stories told by those who were there. For some, it was a circle of hell; for others, a safe haven.
