Delaware County Home

This is an old building with a lot of history. Part of the building dates to Civil War times. It was used as a hospital during the Civil War and prior to closing, it was an old folks home. Many people died there over the years. Behind the home is a building that was converted from holding mentally ill patients in the 1800s to a garage. The high bricked in windows are the evidence. In the field northeast of the building are several burial plots (a potters field) for people who died in the home.
