The poor farm site in Wise, VA is now the location of The University of Virginia at Wise. I suggest you contact the Wise County Historical Society at 276-328-6451 or alternate phone 276-328-6569. They also have a website (wisevahistoricalsoc.org). I'm sure they can point you in the right direction.
