Appended is an abstract of income and expenditure for past year, showing a nett profit of £96, 16s. The institution was taken over by Aberdeen County Council in 1930 and became Maud Home.
In 1946 an official report noted that it had a total of 160 beds for 'ordinary poor, harmless lunatics, mental defectives and chronic sick.' The building was described as having 'narrow dark central corridors, with dayrooms and dormitories on either side, enjoying neither cross light or cross ventilation'.
The now much-enlarged building survives as Braco Cottage. The building still exists and is survives as Cam Ranh Croft, although is also known as Turfhill Cottage. In 1904, the building could accommodate up to 22 men and women, with four "attendants" in residence. The building was designed by architects James Matthews and Thomas Mackenzie.
The building no longer exists and the site is now occupied by ornamental gardens. By 1904, it could accommodate up to 11 men and 11 women, under the care of a matron and her assistant.
Just so you know, sometimes the locations don't exist or the connection speeds are poor so options don't entirely load.
Buchan erected a Combination poorhouse at Bank Road to the south of New Maud. I find the farm manure from the cows and pigs ample.
Construction work took place in 1867-8 and the building opened in January 1869. The cesspool refuse I keep separate, and, mixed with soil and rubbish, it makes capital top-dressing, and raises splendid cabbages and other vegetables.
The pigs are sold fat, and young ones are bought to replace them, as I find it more profitable to buy young pigs than to breed them.
Potatoes are grown to the extent of about 10 tons per year; they are used in the house, and are charged at market rates. In each year three acres of oats are grown, made into meal, and charged at the same rate as the meal supplied by contract.
