LOCAL NOTES:

Here is a fascinating 1974 Frontier Times article ... which we have presented as best we could in a format similar to the original (complete with the photographs) ... about the Cass County County Poor Farm.   
[Because of photographs, these pages may take quite a while to load.]

[Note: Don't miss this one! We will be placing it on our Featured Articles page because it is so well done that it should be of interest to anyone interested in any aspect of poorhouse history ... especially anywhere else in Texas ... as well as those interested in Cass County.  PHL ]


Here is another smaller and more recent (1992 Cass County Sun) newspaper article: 
"County Farm Explored."
