Poor Farms Cemetery Memorial

Late September, we gathered in Clark Couny Indiana for the memorial service and formal dedication of the recently relocated Clark County Poor Farm Cemetery. Corn Island was honored to be trusted by River Ridge with the archaeological disinterment of 33 individuals buried at the Poor Farm from 1930-1939. Corn Island’s Mindi Wetzel was the PI on this project.
