Mr. Moody will speak on the
fascinating history of the McLean County Poor Farm and Cemetery. It was formerly known as the

Home. The residents who died there were buried on the
property. Only the cemetery remains with 360 burial sites
landlocked on the Shirk Farm. Mr. Moody has been researching
the cemetery for 10 years and has a binder full of
information he will share. The Public is invited to attend.
