This is a post to be continued…….

At one time all of the counties in Texas had a poor farm. Today Kaufman County is the only county that still owns the poor farm. All  the rest of the poor farms are in private hands. This one is maintained by the Kaufman County Historical Commission. They have worked hard to raise fund for restoration for years. This first photo is but one of the original buildings on the farm…..
