St Joseph's Orphanage, Kenmore, was mentioned in the Lost Innocents Report (2001) as an institution that was potentially involved in the migration of children to Australia.
In 2019, the former orphanage is known as Liminis House. A former resident of the orphanage visited the site in 2015 and described what it was like:
'Memories came flooding back as I walked down these now quiet and lonely hallways and it was I who ended up being the tour guide [for the new owners], describing the many aspects of our daily lives when I lived here as a child.
As I stood in the entry hallway I could still see myself kneeling down with a toothbrush in hand, scrubbing the intricate parquetry tiles before having to operate the monstrous polisher that was twice my size, being ever so careful as it would throw you around the room like a rag doll while trying to operate it.'
