The Wyandot County Infirmary dates back to 1869 and housed men, women and children who had no support system for their financial, mental or physical health problems. Over the years, the homestead raised Holstein cattle that supplied dairy products. There was also a field for planting and raising crops. The farm was managed by the male residents. The residents harvested a great number of crops that the kitchen staff, consisting of female residents, prepared. The crops also were a source of income to support the home’s operation.
