Cora shares a little history of the Poor Farm with us!

"I love the history of the Poor Farm and it’s resurrection as an art space- FYI: A product of the nineteenth-century American Poor Farm System (a social establishment modeled after the English almshouses), the Waupaca County Poor Farm was erected in 1876. Historically county government–supported institutions, as an alternative to indentured labor these working farms were populated with the region’s destitute. Poor farm residents were assigned inmate status and required to work under strict conditions for minimal living accommodations. (The Poor Farm has a jail in the basement and a cemetery in the back cornfield, underscoring the social and economic complex encompassing the poor farm system.) When the Social Security Act was established in 1935, the American Poor Farm system went into decline and, ultimately, dissolution."
