The Poor Farm
The Poor Farm
By Sue N. from Missouri
Project Story:
Last year we bought our county welfare farm aka The Poor Farm, it shut down in the 1950's and since then had been rented out. At some point a fire broke out in the house, and it was never repaired. I fell in love with this place at first sight, even before I knew the history of the place. In honor of all the residents here, even/esp. the mentally ill that lived in the basement chained to a cell, we want to restore it and make it a historic place and home for guests.
