|MADISON COUNTY POORHOUSE FARM SITE AND CEMETERY
NEW MARKET, ALABAMA
1870 - 1923
For 53 years Madison county operated an establishment one-half mile to the south where the indigent, lame, and unfortunate were housed in a series of log buildings. Each year a superintendent and a physician were appointed to care for their needs. For many paupers this became their final resting place. Today, the only visible remains of the facility are the depressions which indicate hundreds of unmarked graves in the pasture and wooded areas.
