Consists of two hundred and sixty-three acres and is a large, well-conducted farm. Its soil products are general, covering everything common to this section and climate. There is a small dairy, products of which are delivered to the local markets.

Mr. Howland raises and deals in fine horses. There is a half-mile track on his farm. A fine variety of fruit adds to the (sic-sg) its revenues. The name is derived from its elevation and its many locust trees. It is said to be one of the most commanding points in the town, certainly the scenery is picturesque and extended, as viewed from the residence. The buildings are supplied with running water from never-failing springs brought through pipes. There are twenty acres of hardwood timber.
