In 1926 a clinic for crippled children was established in Lonaconing at the request of Mrs. Ann B. Sloan with nearly 90 children attending the first clinic. A clinic was organized shortly afterwards in Cumberland.

In 1934 the Allegany County League for Crippled Children was formally founded and incorporated by Henrietta Schwarzenbach, R.N. and Miss Elizabeth McLaughlin. Since that time over 30,000 children have been examined in the free orthopedic, cerebral palsy, brace, and orofacial monthly clinics.
