the Poorhouse Story
PERSONAL NOTES FROM READERS:

"My grandparents were caretakers of the Hill County, TX Poor Farm in about 1929-1930.  Their names were Thomas Daniel White and Mollie Mae White.  I played there on my visits. The Poor Farm was located approximately 1.5 - 2 miles from Hillsboro, north on #171 toward Osceola and Covington, on the right side of the road at the top of the hill.  On the left side of the road, there is a masonry building where a prison farm was located."
