          62112   Can you see the Twin Bridges, Montana water tower in the distance?
          Over the past ten years we received dozens of requests to see the "Montana Children's Center" near Twin Bridges, Montana.
          The "Montana State Orphan's Asylum" was established by the 1893 Montana legislature for the
          "care and education of orphans, foundlings, and destitute children".  Any child under the age of 12 was eligible for admission.
          "A large percentage of children at the home were not orphans, but were children who for a variety of reasons
          could not be cared for by their parents."
          In 1959 the home was renamed the "Montana Children's Center."   The Center closed in 1979.

          We hope the siging birds sound familiar to Twin Bridges, Montana visitors.
          We recorded the early morning birds at the "Glen Bridge" on the Big Hole River.
