The Untold Story Of This Amazing West Virginia Park May Surprise You

The pride we have in our heritage is one of the things that makes us such a strong people here in the Mountain State. To that end, the history behind this beautiful and popular park is often overlooked, even though the not-so-politically-correct term for its past use is included in the name of the attraction.

Want to visit? Poor House Farm Park is located on Poor House Road in Martinsburg, WV 25403. It’s open daily from dawn to dusk. Learn more on the official website of the Martinsburg-Berkeley County Parks and Recreation Board.

Do you remember hearing about the County Farms? And do you know of other previous County Farms (poor houses) in West Virginia that are also closed down but with remnants that still exist? We’d love to know about them.
