Hi Eddie: My sister-in-law, visitng from Southington, used to teach at Smith School in N.B. She says the Poor Farm was down the hill from Smith School. I just found in NB city directories of the 1930's, that one of our Grace ancestors lived his last 6 years in the Town Home, what is now referred to as the Town Farm. It was a place for indigents.
