Little Joe's is named after the original Little Joe's Church which was built in 1906. The church was named in honor of Joe Gilland, known at the Home as Little Joe. Little Joe was a frail, but warm-hearted young boy, who died at age nine. Among his personal possessions was found a small coin purse containing 45 cents and a note saying the money was for a church. During his lifetime, Little Joe had often talked about building a church on campus, so the children would not have to walk into a nearby town to attend worship services. When Little Joe's story became known, donations from all over North Carolina poured in and later, in 1906, his dream and Little Joe's Church became a reality. Today, we celebrate this historic building with a new facility that mimics the original design and is located on the very spot where it once stood.
