Welcome to the Former Greene County Home, also known as an Almshouse or Poor Farm. The Greene County Home Opened in 1862 and Operated for a little over a century seeing well over 6000 residents or “inmates” during its years of operation. Though the facility was designed to house those who were poor and destitute, in practice it became an asylum very much like many of the State Hospitals in the Region, but on a smaller scale. The early years of the buildings history proved to be, at times, very violent. Inmates were chained to walls in the basement and overcrowding was common place, leading to local and national criticism of the horrific living conditions.
Many of the Staff and Guests report unexplained footsteps, sounds, smells and many have even witnessed full bodied apparitions. Many of the troubled souls who once lived at the Former County Home still walk the halls and make their presence known. Join Haunted Nights on a full investigation of this amazing historic location full of artifacts from its past. Recently featured on an episode of Destination Fear the Greene County Home is sure to challenge even the most experienced investigators. With different themed rooms ranging from a "military room" and "victorian parlors" to the terrifying poor house cells there is no shortage of places to encounter past residents who have never left.
