This building is the Owen County Home, or Owen County Insane asylum. The main structure of the building was built in 1821 by Col. John Franklin. Later in 1878 Owen County purchase the building to move into. The needs of the poor and mentally ill had outgrown the original building in Freedom, IN just 2 miles down river.
