Product Overview

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.
