the Poorhouse Story
PENNSYLVANIA POORHOUSE HISTORY by county


LOCAL NOTES

"The Poor farm, so called, was originally Valentine land. From them it passed to T.E. Jodon and wife who lived on it six years, selling it then to George Tibbens, who in turn, sold it to Spring Township for the home for the poor. Since the new Public Assistance setup, it has been bought by John Holubec. The last couple to live on it and to care for the indigent of Spring Township was Mr. and Mrs. George Cox. Prior to them the Foglemans had lived there for several years."
