Decatur County Poor Farm began in January of 1866 when Dozier B. Gammon sold 160 acres to the county. Those that died at the poor house were buried in the little area set aside for a cemetery. The location is slightly south of where the large county farm house stood and then east to the top of the ridge. The area is not maintained and at one time had a fence around it.
