A significant feature of the Bellview neighborhood, the Colored Baptist Orphanage Home opened in 1905 and was the only African-American orphanage in North Carolina. About 1919, the organization moved from a nearby farm house to a new building on Clemmonsville Road. The boys dormitory was later built near the corner of Moravia and Burgandy Streets. Consisting of a 28-acre campus, the orphanage maintained a farm and sponsored a band. When city civic clubs took over the operation of the orphanage in 1923, it became the Memorial Industrial School. In 1929, the institution moved north of Winston-Salem and the Bellview campus was closed and demolished.
