Poor Farm on McKay Road, in Newport, Nova Scotia

There has been a lot of renewed interest, in what was the local poor farm. It was in operation, as far as I know, from 1862 until 1961. The cemetery is next to my house and has little headstones on the graves, with only roman numerals on them. There seems to be very little information available, so if anyone has any stories, or artifacts, pictures etc. I'd love to hear from you. Contact me any time. mgreenwood@ns.sympatico.ca
