For many years, the State of Wisconsin operated a home for children in Sparta, Wisconsin. It was known locally as the Child Center. Many children from throughout Wisconsin lived there because they were removed from their homes or because they were orphans. The Home closed about 30 years ago (1976) and all the records were transferred to the State Historical Society in Madison.
