History[edit]

The Warren County Poor Farm was built in 1869 to served the people of Williamsport and Warren County Indiana. The property contained the main brick house, a granary, a machine shed, an English barn, a grain bin, a shed, and a workshop. There is a cemetery located slightly east of the county home, at the intersection of Indiana Routes 300 N and 50 W. The county home still serves the community today. [1]
