Earth Day Celebration (JCHS Activities)

April 22 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

As part of the larger Iowa City Earth Day Celebration, JCHS will be giving open house-style tours of the Poor Farm and Asylum from 2-5 p.m. Why were there farms associated with the poor? Come to the Poor Farm to learn about how poor people, mentally and physically disabled people, headstrong women “who read,” and other disenfranchised groups were treated in the 1800s and beyond.
