COUNTY FARM CEMETERY

The County Farm Cemetery is located on the west side of U. S. Route 67, south of Monmouth, IL., at rural references 1400N 6?5 E » in the northeast quarter of Section 30 in Lenox Twp. It is a part of the land deeded to Warren County, IL., by Luther Dickson on Feb. 16, 1860. The County Farm, in its earlier time known as the Warren County Alms House, was established to care for and give shelter to those individuals who either had not the ability or were without the resources for maintaining themselves. The cemetery was for inmates of the farm who died without the means for burial elsewhere. Most of the burials were prior to 1900. The County Farm closed in 1970 and the buildings have since been torn down. At present, the Warren County, IL., Finance Committee looks after the cemetery. In August 1981, the County Farm Cemetery inscriptions were identified as:
