Little Orphan Annie House
Little Orphan Annie's House
Pictured above is the home of Dr. William LeRoy, a well-known physician in the Lombard area back in the 1800s. Dr. LeRoy specialized in making prosthetic limbs for veterans of the Civil War and lived in this very home from 1881 until 1900. The structure has since become known as 'The Little Orphan Annie House,' since the comic's creator, Harold Gray, lived here when he dreamed up his storyline in the study. For more information about gaining entrance to this historical site, contact the Lombard Historical Museum at (630) 629-1885.
