On May 17th, 1883 it was agreed in the Commissioners Court to purchase 149 acres for the County Poor Farm. The poor farm was located about 2 miles north of the town of Hillsboro. The county prison and old folks home where also on this property.
"For the poor will never cease to be in the land; therefore I command you, saying, ‘You shall freely open your hand to your brother, to your needy and poor in your land'."
