LOCAL NOTES:

Linda Kmiecik has submitted notes about the LIVINGSTON County Poorhouse. (Click on this link to obtain information about location, history, records, and contacts.) 

"Livingston Manor, 14335 US Hwy. 66 (famous Old Rt. 66), Pontiac, IL, 815-844-5121 is still being operated as a nursing facility. Although to my surprise, there is an unattended overgrown cemetery west of the current building where some patients  were buried. The current building is not the original; it is a one story with wings extending to each side."
