B-W Trivia: What Was the Name of This Place?

We will reveal the answer on Monday.

The Baldwin-Whitehall Patch has partnered with the Baldwin Historical Society to bring you a weekly trivia question that delves into our area's colorful past.

Pat Lombardi and Patty Woehler, co-presidents of the society, generously write the questions and provide the pictures.

Here is this week's question:

This building was a former schoolhouse—a gaunt, boxlike structure erected by a community of Roman Catholic nuns to teach the children of coal miners.

It was left vacant when the local public schools were established.

It was then taken over by an organization to be used as a free home for convalescent men and boys. This was in the early 1900s.

The building was located on Willett Road. And while the organization is still in existence, it is not in this area.

What was the name of this place?

No multiple choice this week! Does anyone know the answer?
