County Farm Cemetery

also known as Henry County Poor Farm Graveyard
T42, R26, S33 - Fields Creek Township
NW 221, Clinton, Henry County, Missouri
49 known burials from 1884 to 1932

Landowner: Stan Hilty
History: Burials in this cemetery are documented by a few county records and newspaper reports only. The actual number of burials is unknown, and may have spanned over 60 years. The County Farm was started in 1871 when the court bought 160 acres NW of Clinton from Frederick Crissman. The poor, crippled, blind and insane were housed here. Those who were able to work tended cattle, hogs, mules, corn, hay, wheat and fruit. In 1883 there were only 9 residents. That number grew to between 40 and 60 in 1896. A large brick building, which originally consisted of 8 cells and 16 rooms is still standing, a reminder of how Henry County attempted to care for their helpless and poverty stricken residents.
