WARNING!

Be aware that the Amery Poor Farm is private property and under constant surveillance.

TRESPASSING IS A CRIME!   UNAUTHORIZED PERSONS FOUND ON THIS PROPERTY WILL BE SUBJECT TO ARREST AND PROSECUTION!

If you have any information that could lead to the arrest and conviction of trespassers at the Amery Poor Farm, please call the Polk County Sheriff's Department (non-emergency):  (715) 485-8300.

 

The Reputed History:

Many years ago, a young boy living in the house was witness to a cattle theft.  Later, the cattle rustlers, knowing that the boy had been an eyewitness, returned and stabbed him to death.  To this day the boy haunts the house.

 

The Investigation:  

This was the site of the "Polk County Home" from 1870-1950.  We have been unable to verify the story about the boy and his death.

The Reputed Phenomena:  

Apparitions of the boy have been seen in the house.

 

The Investigation:  

The owner verified that when the house was being renovated, workers reported seeing a young boy in the window at a time when there were no children living in the house.

The Poor Farm is also home to an unmarked cemetery. This cemetery is located in the back yard of the Poor Farm. However, the original location of the cemetery is across the road from the front yard of the farm. At some unknown date the cemetery was moved from the front yard into its current resting place in the back. The current owner has also stated that on several occasions the farmer who owns the land of the original cemetery will dig up parts of the bodies that did not get moved with the rest of the cemetery.
