A Sad and Solemn Walk Thru a Missouri Poor Farm and Cemetery
You can almost feel the sadness of this place. There's a new video that shows a walkthrough of what used to be a Missouri poor farm and cemetery and it's about as solemn experience as you can imagine.
A couple shared their experiences in the Pulaski County Poor Farm and Cemetery. As they shared, this was a home where the poor and handicapped of that area would stay and work. The home now has been damaged by weather and vandals and there's very little left. In the cemetery, all of the headstones except one have sunk into the ground. A university apparently did a survey to figure out where the graves were originally and marked them with rudimentary crosses.

There could be a light at the end of the rainbow. According to Find A Grave, the Pulaski County Poor Farm Cemetery is part of a restoration project. Let's hope so. All of these souls deserved to be remembered regardless of their physical limitations or financial status in life.
