NAME: County Home Cemetery
cemetery is for residents of the old County Home of Catawba County,
commonly known as the Poor House. Started about 1850, the County Home
was operated by the county until about 1945.
There were 12 buildings, each having 2 people reside
there. Remnants of two of the buildings are still standing. One
of them is being used for a barn. This property is now privately owned;
it is not kept up due to the private ownership, and the property being
used in a farming operation. Access is strictly by permission only!
