The Rug Factory

The post KDO-01.png

In 1903 at the 10th Annual Meeting of the Corporation of King’s Daughter’s held at the Central Baptist church, Dr. A.L. Converse spoke on behalf of C.W. Post, Carrie Post’s son. In an effort to make the Home partly self-supporting, it was suggested by Mr.Post to have a RUG FACTORY in connection with the Home, in which all “able bodied inmates” (residence) should work several hours per day!! The idea was VERY unpopular and the rug factory did not materialize.
