LAKE FRONT. This is the farm of William B. DeShong, whose postoffice is Aurora, N.Y. It is located between Aurora and Levanna, one mile distant from each respectively. The situation is picturesque, overlooking Cayuga Lake, the residence fronting on a beautiful lawn, studded with fine shade trees, is modern in its appointments. The barns and outbuildings are conveniently arranged and in good repair. The soil is adapted to grain and grass, and on account of its splendid water facilities, dairying and stock raising would prove a successful venture. Fruit culture is a prominent feature. Its convenient location adds greatly to the farm's value. The L. V. R. R. passes near the residence, and the attractive village of Aurora is but a mile distant affording church, school and marketing privileges. Mr. DeShong owns two other farms adjoining "Lake Front," aggregating one hundred and seventy-five acres, all under cultivation and well watered, "E. Straun Farm" and "D. Thomas Farm" are their respective names.
