MAPLE LANE is the name given this valuable farm of two hundred and six acres, owned by H. W. Avery. Postoffice address, Ledyard. It is on the road running from King Ferry to Auburn, which is seventeen miles, to the former three miles, Aurora seven miles. General farming, stock raising and dairying are the farm's resources. Mr. Avery has a select small herd of Devon cattle, the milk products are taken to the Elgin creamery at Poplar Ridge, two miles north. This is a highly-cultivated and well-improved farm. The name is derived from two rows of beautiful hardwood maples extending the full length of the lane from the main road to the buildings, from east to west, which is said to be one of the prettiest private roads in Venice. The buildings are all modern in architecture and convenience, and the location picturesque. There are two acres of apple orchard, as well as other fruits, including pears, plums and cherries, while small fruits are not neglected. The water supply is conveyed from a spring in pipes to the barn and poultry house, thus giving to stock and poultry fresh water at all times. The same spring, through separate pipes, also supplies the residence and a unique refrigerator. The residence has a large tank which supplies hot water for bath purposes, in fact, the equipments are as convenient as in many city residences.
E. W. Stark was a previous owner, selling to Mr. Avery in 1897. Mr. Avery is a native of Cayuga County, born in 1875, and married to Miss Edith Plested of Colorado, February 12th, 1901. He is one of the "up-to-date" young farmers of the town.
