The Hendricks County Poor Asylum was first constructed in 1868 for people of Danville, Indiana and Hendrick's County. A second main building was built in 1877. The facility still serves the community as a county home. [1]

The Hendricks County Home is a unique housing facility in a historic home-like setting. Surrounded by flower gardens, spacious lawns, and large trees, the Home offers a relaxed country-like environment with a full line of services for independent or assisted living. With professional nurse consultants, as well as an experienced staff of caregivers, residents are assured of safe and comfortable housing as well as particular attention to individual needs.[2]
