Logan County Poor Farm

Logan County
Poor Farm

Researched & Submitted by: Bob Chada

The Logan County Poor Farm was a farm acquired by the county from a bequest of J. T. Hart who passed away December 2, 1889. He left the farm for an orphan's home.

The property was maintained by the county as a combined orphan's home and "poor farm" or refuge for the indigent elderly.

Mr. & Mrs. John Poll were long time caretakers of the farm, coming there on January 1, 1920. The farm at one time had a two story house and a single story house, plus barns and many outbuildings.

On November 1, 1976 the farm was sold, thus ending its existence.
