PIONEER STOCK FARM, on the Lake road from Aurora to Kings Ferry, commands a beautiful view of the surrounding country, having a western exposure overlooking the Lake. It numbers one hundred sixty-four acres, owned by W. L. Franklin, postoffice address, King Ferry. It is adapted to the raising of mixed products with dairying as a special feature. There is a fine apple orchard and a variety of small fruits. The soil is productive and the water supply to the house and barns is furnished by wells and springs and there are forty acres of timber. The residence, with its beautiful and well shaded lawn, is in excellent repair, as well as the barns and buildings. The previous owner was Samuel N. Franklin, a native of Cayuga County, who resided here until his death in 1896, when it came into possession of his son, Howard H. Franklin, and from him to W. L. Franklin, who was born in 1878 and married Miss Sophia Atwater in 1899.
