1920 US Federal Census
Juvenile Detention Home
Council Bluffs, Kane Twp.

Census of the Juvenile Detention Home, Pierce Street, Council Bluffs. Enumerated 8 January 1920.

This was one of several homes in the city for "wayward" children.
Not all children were "juvenile offenders," however, as many were
sent to such a home if their parents couldn't care for or feed them
or the children were not attending school or were orphaned.
