This Historic Farm In Nebraska Has a Fascinating Past
There’s a very special farm in Dodge County just north of Fremont, Nebraska. At one time it housed the destitute, the injured, the sick, and the desperate – people who had nowhere else to go. The Dodge County Poor Farm operated for decades as a refuge for humans, and it now houses animals with nowhere else to go.

The Dodge County Poor Farm has come full-circle, once again providing comfort and care for those who need it most. Two-hour historical tours of the farm are available with advance reservations; see the Poor Farm’s website for more information.
