BALDWIN HOMESTEAD, of one hundred and forty-one acres, is owned by William N. Baldwin. Postoffice address, Moravia, R. F. D. It ranks among the fine farms of this fertile section of Cayuga County, being located in Lot 64, near the State Road and the projected Auburn and Ithaca electric railroad. Moravia is six miles distant and Auburn fifteen. The farm is adorned with fine buildings in good repair and made attractive with evergreen and shade trees. Sheep raising and dairying are two important industries of the farm, while hay and grain are the principal soil products. There are two fine apple orchards and an abundance of other fruit, pears, peaches, cherries, etc. Running water for the stock, and good wells at the house and barns supply water. There are twenty acres of timber, mostly hardwood. The farm has a southwestern exposure. Dr. J. Foote owned this farm until his death in 1848, when the title passed to the present owner, who is a native of Tompkins County, N. Y., and was born in 1826. He married Miss Lavina Foote; they have four children, a son and three daughters, all living. Mr. Baldwin is one of the prosperous farmers of the county, having added all the improvements to the farm since he came into possession.
