The Harrison County Home

Harrison County Home Building

The Harrison County Home Building celebrated one hundred ten years of service in 2015. It is a stately, beige brick with large porches on the front and either end for our Residents to relax and enjoy watching the passing cars on State Route 250.

At one time, the Harrison County Home was self-sufficient, raising all the food for those who lived here. They operated a dairy, raised beef, pork and poultry, grew fruit in the orchard as well as huge vegetables. A shaft in the hill above the Home provided coal for heat. The gardens, beef and pork were raised on site as late as the 1970's. The Residents worked for their room and board.

Time has passed and so has the self-sufficiency of the Home. Our County Home is now a home for the elderly and is sourced by local tax levies and self-pay residents. The Home offers a friendly country home-like atmosphere. The second floor offers independent private rooms for individuals and couples. The main floor is primarily for those Residents who need more care. Over the years, an elevator and sprinkler system were added and updates are often done for our century old building. The entire staff is dedicated to offering the best care for our Residents.

The Home is a source of pride for Harrison County and is surrounded by lovely green lawns, mature trees and flowers. We are very proud to offer tours to anyone who stops to see us.
