Rate this:
In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, cities and towns were bustling places in Western New York. Those who could not afford to care for themselves were sent to a building at the edge of town. Whether they were called almshouses, the poorhouses, or county homes, these facilities have a mixed legacy that is both inspiring and controversial. This book tells the story of the almshouses of Western New York.
