Harris said the poor farm actually is older than Harrison County itself.
He said the farm dates to a time when Harrison County was still part of Monongalia
County and West Virginia had not yet split from Virginia.
When residents of the farm died, they were buried at the cemetery, often with no markers or written records. That is causing some problems in developing a historic marker for the property.
