Title: History of the Poorhouse and Farm in Morgan County Illinois
Contact: Hillary, 243-5435
Location: JPL Meeting Room
Description: An author talk and book signing. The Morgan County Poorhouse and Farm in Jacksonville, Illinois, as author Dr. Joe Squillace shows, served a wide array of persons with various human, mental and social needs, a product of the intellectual and religious surrounding community. What is revealed is an institution that struggles, like today’s institutions, to meet the needs of those living in poverty with resource constraints and the current knowledge base of how to address complex needs.
