Kintore, Aberdeenshire

Kintore operated a parochial poorhouse or almshouse from the 1890s. It was locally administered rather than operating as a statutory poorhouse under the central Board of Supervision.

The poorhouse was located about a mile to the west of Kintore village and is identified as a poorhouse on the second edition Ordnance Survey map of 1901, but not on the first edition of 1869.

Kintore poorhouse site, 1901.

A much larger building now occupies the site.
