Who We Are

Many hands come together to make the Historic Poor Farm what it is. Behind the scenes, there are people planning 

Johnson County Board of Supervisors

The Board of Supervisors is Johnson County's legislative body composed of five members. Supervisors are elected at large and serve a four-year term.

 The development of the Historic Poor Farm is led by its 10-year master plan, which was passed by the Johnson County Board of Supervisors in 2017. You can learn more about them and their work here.

Partners

Since everything at the farm is a team effort, it only makes sense that our leadership would reflect that. Our managers team draws from the Johnson County Board of Supervisors office, Iowa Valley Resource Conservation & Development, and the Johnson County Historical Society.
