Anna Brown Home for the Aged

Mrs. Anna E. Brown, widow of Charles Brown, was born in Connecticut, in 1830, and died in Quincy October 22, 1893.  Mrs. Brown provided in her will for the establishment of a home for the aged, to which she devised her residence, at the northwest corner of Fifth and Maple streets, and which home she endowed with interest-bearing securities worth $55,000.  Thus was founded what was named the Anna Brown Home for the Aged, in arranging for which the management spent about $18,000 for a new building and other improvements in 1897.  The home was opened in January, 1898.  Acceptable applicants only are admitted, and there is an admission fee of $300.  The management has been such that the institution is in excellent condition every way.  Hon. W. H. Collins is president,  Osman B. Gordon, vice-president;  T. C. Poling, treasurer, and George H. Wilson, secretary, of the corporation.  Miss Elizabeth Carelton is matron.  At this writing there are twelve women and four men in the home.
