Alice Garfield Worden Laidlaw operated the Algonquin School, consisting of two large buildings and several acres of land on Algonquin Avenue, as a residential school for developmentally disabled children. The building was built by Alice Worden's husband, psychiatrist Dr. Stephen Worden, who erected the two large buildings on several acres as a mental hospital. She established the school after the death of her first husband, Dr. Stephen Worden, a psychiatrist, who erected the buildings as a mental hospital.

The school was taken over by Lee Knight, and later by the Knight's daughter, Glenda Clayton and her husband Ray. It burned in 1976, and was closed shortly thereafter.
