The Halloween Children's Home was set up around 1926 by a private committee.  The Halloween Children's Home was officially opened by former Australian Prime Minister WM Hughes and his wife Dame Mary on Saturday 16 October 1926.  The Halloween Home was also known as the Strathfield Home for Children.

Halloween Children's Home had regular garden fetes to raise funds in the 1920s, and was supported by local businesses and citizens, including the grocers Messrs Matthews Thompson and Company and Mrs WK Arnott, the wife of the founder of Arnott's Biscuits, who held bridge parties in her home on Wakeford Road.

The house Halloween was later owned by Strathfield Council and used as the Town Clerk's residence. It was sold in 1961.
