COLD SPRING COTTAGE is located at Venice Center, eight miles to Moravia and Aurora, and fourteen miles to Auburn. This beautiful home is owned by William Beardsley, and is one of the very pleasant locations in the town of Venice. It derives its name from a fine spring located near by. Water is furnished to the residence and barns by windmill power. Mr. Beardsley is also owner of Novelty Mills, which are equipped with machinery for sawing lumber, a supply of lumber is kept at the mills; also feed, which is ground here, and wagon repairing and saw filing receive attention. He also keeps on hand a supply of potato crates. Lyman Murdock, a previous owner, sold to L. T. Murdock, and from the latter the property passed to J. H. Murdock, thence to the present owner in 1900. Mr. Beardsley has made many improvements, increasing considerably the value of the property. He was born in Tompkins County, N. Y., 1855, and married Miss S. E. Barber, a native of Cayuga County, in 1877.
