Description

Take a drive west on Division Street and pay attention as you pass over Interstate 44. There, immediately to your right is an overgrown wooded area. For almost 90 years, that was where Greene County’s indigent were sent to live. The buildings that have stood there had many names: the almshouse, poorhouse, county poor farm, and later Sunshine Acres, which was finally closed in 1978. The people who lived there were Greene County’s poor and homeless. The elderly, disabled and mentally ill who had no one to care for them were sent to the almshouse. There were alcoholics, unwed women and girls who found themselves “in trouble,” orphaned children and babies. Another nice website with pictures http://hayden-family.info/album6_024.htm
