FALL BROOK FARM is another fine property of fifty-nine acres, owned by Maurice Polhamus. Postoffice address, Aurora, N. Y. It joins the village of Aurora on the east, and is devoted to the raising of fruits and vegetables, with a ten acre peach orchard as well as the cultivation of small fruits. Wells and a stream furnish an ample supply of water, and a second growth of timber is sufficient for the farm's needs. "Fall Brook" derives its name from the water fall of fifty feet, located on the farm. The picturesque features are such as to give it a park-like appearance. The previous owners were James Avery, who sold to E. Burnham, he to James Smith, from him to E. T. Brown, and from him to the present owner.
