The Beulah Heights Orphanage was an orphanage from 1895 to 1908 run by Carrie Judd Montgomery. It was in Beulah Heights on Alice St. near Rose Avenue. 1

An average of 50 to 100 children were in the home. The Salvation Army took over in 1908 2 and it was sometimes referred to as the Salvation Army Home, Beulah Heights. In 1921, the Salvation Army was raising funds for a new facility to be built at Garden Street, which would later become the Booth Memorial Hospital. 3

Alice became McClelland Street when the area was annexed by Oakland; the section of McClelland street was destroyed when the MacArthur Freeway was built. Rose Avenue became Hopkins, which was replaced by the freeway.
