Lord of the Rings Part IV "Battle Isle of Royale". Frodo & Sam move from the shire to the Isle of Royale and all is grand...that is until Gollum, Sauron, and Smaug meet in the underworld, bond over their strong dislike of Frodo & Sam, and return to the land of the living where they track the "nasty little hobbitses" to the beautiful, peaceful Isle of Royale. They're back. And they are very, very ticked off. Coming Soon To Theatres Summer 2022.....๐Ÿ˜‰

Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula

"Potter's Fields" & "Poor Farms"

Who ended up at "poor farms"? People that were injured on the job & unable to return to work. Children who lost both parents to illness or accident or their parents couldn't afford to take care of them. The elderly. People that were suffering from a mental health condition. People that had developmental challenges. People that were blind or deaf.

As you can see people of all ages and from all walks of life ended up living at "poor farms". Houghton County had a "poor farm" built in the 1870s. The abandoned buildings were a popular place for teens in the 80s/90s to go sneak off to and spook themselves. The location just off Houghton Canal Road is private property and the building remains are not structurally stable and are extremely unsafe (i.e. No Trespassing).

Located on the old Houghton County "poor farm" is what's known as a "Potter's Field". Most old cemeteries have designated areas that were for those who couldn't afford burial costs. No tombstone or grave marker--sometimes a simple wood cross might include an etched name or date. Supposedly there are over 250 unmarked graves located here, most buried between 1870-1900. This location was being used until the late 1960s. Then, Houghton County obtained the TB facility in Hancock. The building was renovated into Houghton County Medical Care Facility (now, Canal View).

The Houghton County "poor farm" had an exceptional vegetable garden, beef and dairy cow operation, chickens, pigs, and flower gardens. Residents would rotate jobs, helping maintain the farm. There was at least one child born here. And, one of the longest residents lived here for 40 years.

In 1899, the "Good Will Farm" began as an orphanage in the Copper Country, providing a home and school to children. It was located near Michigan Tech, in a residential area. There were many instances of babies being left in baskets with notes attached, stating their first name and date of birth.

The "Good Will Farm" was demolished and the property is now the location of apartment buildings.

Several years ago I indexed Forest Hill Cemetery in Houghton. I have a picture of every stone up to, 4 years ago. There are several areas where "the poor" were buried. Section 2 has a area, along several fence lines are also areas.

I remember stories about the Good Will Farm. Do you know when it was disbanded?

Now I know the poor farm was real. Thought it was just something people said.

Love all your stories and pictures, don't stop.

I remember the stories of the good will farm. As a child it made me so sad.

God bless them all๐Ÿ˜ข

Mom used to tell us boys, "you're going to put us all in the poor farm" funny then, sad now.

Thank you for sharing these photographs and stories.

I remember visiting the Good Will Farm as a teenager with a church group. The memory of a sweet little girl with fat sausage curls is etched in my mind more than 50 years later.

Great info

Would be nice if they could restore the old poor farm building.

Love this!

Awesome photos!

Looks just like the one in Ontonagon, on the Amos Farm.

Sad but better than today with all the homeless no roof no food no purpose

It’s the same building.

They built over The Potter’s Field?

If anyone does a search for Forest Hill Cemetery, Houghton Michigan you will find my website with the indexed records.

Then theres debters prison

Breath taking!!! To bad we live so far away porcupine mountains would have been the perfect place to take Senior pictures for our Son!!!

Question: my 91 year old mom who walks with a rollater would absolutely love to take the chairlift ride tomorrow. Will the chairlift stop so she can get on/off? She wouldn't be able to do it if its moving.

beautiful scenery.

Megan Irene Cooley I would do do this!โ˜บ
