Join us for a sneak peek of the 16th annual Living History Day portrayals. Local residents honor those buried at the Wood County Paupers' Cemetery with first-person interpretations of administrators and residents affiliated with the Wood County Infirmary. 2019 honorees were chosen to coincide with the current exhibit "For Comfort & Convenience: Public Charity in Ohio by Way of the Poor Farm" which features histories and current photographs of poor farm sites throughout all 88 Ohio counties.
