The Other Half: Providing for Clarke County’s Poor

September 25, 2021 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Presented in partnership with the Clarke County Historical Association.
Special thanks to Warfield Homes for sponsoring this event!

In the modern era, social welfare is a pretty sensitive topic, but the concept has existed for millennia. How else were people supposed to survive if they had no other means or just needed a little help? Join Archivist Melanie Garvey as she delves into Clarke County’s system of poverty relief from the county’s inception in 1836 to the end of the County Farm in 1941.


Doors open at 1:30 PM and presentation starts at 2:00 PM.
