Adopt-a-Day at the National Orphan Train Complex to honor your loved ones in a unique manner—in a unique place!  Did you know that it costs $120 just to open the door on the Complex everyday?

This includes utilities, insurance, maintenance, and salary for our curator. It doesn’t include any exhibit updates or enhancements. NOTC receives no federal or state funds and operational grants do not exist.

Recognize the birthday of your Rider (or any other special person), your anniversary, or a Rider’s departure date. Names will be recognized on the special date in the Orphan Train Museum and on the NOTC website. This is another great way to keep your Rider’s name and memory alive!

Note: The form can be filled out electronically, or printed out and hand-written.
