THE ELMS is owned by Mrs. Jane E. Iden. Post office address, Aurora, R. F. D., No. 28. It consists of one hundred and eighty acres on the Aurora road at the corner of Venice and Scipio town line, three miles from Aurora and fourteen to Auburn. Hay, grain, fruit and dairying are the farm's principal resources. Dairy products are delivered to the Poplar Ridge Elgin Creamery, a short distance southeast. This is one of the creditable farms of the town. Its buildings are in good repair. There is no waste land and the soil is exceedingly productive. Its location gives a fine view to the west, overlooking Cayuga and Seneca lakes and intervening landscape. Never-failing wells supply water to buildings and stock, and there are thirty-five acres of hardwood timber. Greenfield Iden was an occupant of the farm in 1824, where he resided until his death in 1877, when the title passed to his son George, who made his residence here until his death in 1897, when it came into possession of the present incumbent.
