A foster home for children opened here on September 1st, 1909 at the initiative of the Child Protection Association, following the plans of architect F. Buertmes.
The present day orphanage was called The Children’s Home during the communist period.
The first building, the one in the rondo next to the wall, appears for the first time in a map in 1907 and was erected by architect Josef Bedeus von Scharberg. The building displays a tower, probably in remembrance of the fact that the Soldishturm was situated nearby until 1881.
A day care center functioned in the building at the corner with Alba Iulia Street during the communist period.
