Inscription.  
On September 24, 1873, the first Wood County Infirmary Superintendent, Thomas C. Reid, was given permission to construct a hog pen. On August 17, 1903, Superintendent Frank Brandeberry replaced the original hog pen with the first brick structure.

An opportunity presented itself on November 14, 1913, when Superintendent Frank Brandeberry purchased bricks for $20 and hired stonemason William Blystone to construct a new hog barn at a cost of $130. The Wood County Sentinel-Tribune published an article on January 30, 1913, noting that the bricks used to replace the second hog barn were from a home on W. Wooster Street in Bowling Green. Rumored to be Bowling Green's first brick home, it was built in 1847 for Joseph Rix Tracy, sold to son-in-law Charles F. Chapman, then sold to William Gorril before being demolished to make way for the Wood County Children's Home at 541 W. Wooster Street.

Fun Fact
William Blystone, the stonemason for the Hog Barn, was the son-in-law of Morris Walker, the stonemason for the Wash House.
