The insane prison farm that was located in the 1600’s at the sight of the now Canfield Fairgrounds took in most of the area’s mentally ill and criminally insane people. This, unfortunately included dozens of children through the years that were either criminally insane themselves, or the product of other criminals housed at the farm.
The girls were housed in this building which was, at the time, their boarding house. Many of these female children spanned the ages of 4 years through 12 years of age. Most of them were given dolls made by the prison farm’s male inmates. To say the least, these dolls ranged from simple, faceless dolls to true works of horror.
But the girls loved them anyway and we’re sure you will too.
