The only remaining log building of Jerome’s Poor Farm was moved from its original location on Lincoln Street because the owner was going to tear it down. The cabin was one of two used as a home for indigents in Jerome County. It was built in the 1920s of logs hauled from Pole Creek over Galena summit north of Ketchum. The logs were hand-hewn into a cabin.
