Scioto County Infirmary

February 1876 Infirmary Statistics

“It looks very much like we are becoming a nation of paupers. The County Board of Infirmary Directors are giving outside aid to 177 persons, are supporting 40 children in the Home and 59 in the Infirmary, while the average number of inmates of the Infirmary for the past three months is sixty-four.”1
