Northeastern Junior College Library (Logan County Poorhouse)

-A A +A
Logan County Poorhouse
c. 1900. 3rd St. and Sidney Ave.

The college opened its doors in 1941 but did not acquire its own building until 1945, when it purchased the county poorhouse. This elegantly dormered three-and-one-half-story buff brick structure with a porch retains its original windows and interior wood-work. It is now offices for Northeastern Junior College, which consists primarily of contemporary brick and glass buildings on a campus in east Sterling.
