A survey card from Pownal State School in New Gloucester shows an image of Hill Farm, one of two farms at the state-operated school for persons with developmental disabilities.

The survey shows the census of the farm -- 55 persons -- that there was one cottage supervisor, one assistant and five attendants and that those numbers reflected the needs of the farm for staff.
