Side Street Sunday: Prison Farm

Next to Sunny Rest was the Prison Farm.  It is stated that there were just a few prisoners here (about 30) that farmed the land, maintained the property and assisted with the final stages of the new Ancora State Psychiatric Hospital that is located just up the street from here.

Springer Road has a ton of history within its two-mile stretch.
