1900  Directory -  "GENOA" SECTION

GENOA - Genoa township is the central portion of what was originally organized as "Milton,"
January 27, 1789, ten years prior to formation of Cayuga County.
The population of Milton in 1800 was 3,553. Locke was taken off in 1802; the name
changed April 6, 1808, to "Genoa," and in 1810, with its limits reduced by a township, the
population was 5,425. In 1820, after giving off territory on the north and on the south,
reducing the town to its present boundary, the population was 2,585, being 223 more than
the census returns of 1865, forty-five years intervening.  
Genoa lies in the south-west corner of the county, is 4 miles across in latitude and 10
miles long. Cayuga Lake is the western boundary. The land along the shore rising rather
abruptly a mile inland, abounds in deep ravines, sporting slender streams, whirling and
eddying over the shale rock, of which the base of the soil is formed. From thence to the
summitt ridge, the rolling surface rises gradually to an elevation of 600 feet above the
lake, the soil a rich clay loam, forming pleasant situations and beautiful landscapes.  
From the summitt ridge still eastward, the declivities appear in rapid succession, often
abruptly, 50 to 150 feet, to Little Salmon Creek. The east branch, Big Salmon, is divided
from the west branch by beautifully rolling lands, extensively known as the "Indian Fields,"
the site of an Indian village. The eastern part of the town may be regarded as the third
undulating swell of land, still rising from the lake; the soil predominating to a rich friable
sandy loam.

Population, 2,329 Area, 24, 092 acres.

The postoffice addresses of the residents of this town are Clearview, Five Corners, King
Ferry, East Genoa. Goodyears, Atwater and Genoa, in the town; East Venice, Ledyard and
Locke, in the adjoining towns.
