Becketwood’s History

The original building operated as the Sheltering Arms Orphanage until 1942, when it became a treatment center and then a day school. All that is left of the historic site are the front gate posts and stone chapel. The first Members moved into Becketwood in 1986. Click here for the story of Becketwood.
