Directions to The County Poor Farm Site, courtesy of Juanita Dickey, granddaughter of T.J. Earnest:

Turn off State Route 130 at the road going east, about 1.4 mile south of the Falmouth Road. Continue on that road until you must turn right of left, then turn left. The corner where the road continues east to Hunt City is the site of the overseer's house, razed in 1990. Behind it was a dormitory, behind that the outdoor privies, chicken yards and a small orchard. Turn right and that is the site of the gardens and barn.
To the far left on the hilltop is where the cemetery is.
