Orville and Nelson Beckett were brought to The Oklahoma Orphanage in the early 1900s by their father, AJ Beckett, who was widowed and could not care for his two young boys. The staff provided care for Orville and Nelson while their father worked in order to provide the means to bring them back home. During this time, AJ founded Beckett Bros. Floor Company which remains to this day operating under Beckett Bros. Wood Floor Systems, LLC. Also, The Oklahoma Orphanage has since evolved into The Children's Center, and Beckett Bros. Wood Floor Systems, LLC honors the legacy of our founders through an annual monetary donation for each participant in our “No Shave November” contest.
