Chapter  19 -
Eau Claire County Asylum and Home for the Poor

The Poor Farm

(-as transcribed from page 348)

The poor farm was originally situated about four miles to the southeast of Eau Claire, but that was sold and 31 acres of ground purchased to the west of what is now the asylum farm.  Subsequently 80 acres more were added, so that the farm now comprises 111 acres.  It is under the same management as the asylum and is well conducted.  The total number of inmates in 1913 was 14, and the cost of maintenance was $2,885.73.
