In the 19th and 20th centuries, counties in Michigan cared for those who couldn't care for themselves by housing them in county farms -- or poor farms as they were commonly known. Leelanau county was no exception. Come learn about the poor farm experience and about the Coleman family, managers of the Leelanau County Farm from 1925 until 1960, in this informative presentation. Efforts to preserve the old structure will also be discussed.
