Carrie Steele Logan

Carrie Steele Logan

1829-1900

Carrie Steele was born into slavery and orphaned as a young girl. After emancipation, she worked as a maid in the waiting rooms at Union Station, where she saw many children abandoned. She let the children play in a boxcar during the day while she worked, and at night she took them to her home at the intersection of Wheat Street and Auburn Avenue. Eventually, she was able to build a larger facility. The Carrie Steele-Pitts Home continues to serve abused, neglected and orphaned children today.
