Quoted From the Co. Historian's Office:

"The County House served as a combination poorhouse, orphanage, nursing home and asylum between 1831 and 1922.  Inmates well enough to work operated the farm and to some extent supported themselves and cared for each other.  Inspectorsí reports filed each year with the CountyLegislature reflect nearly unanimous shock at the wretched conditions the people who lived here were forced to endure."
