BROAD VIEW, containing seventy acres, is located on the Salmon Creek Road, running from Genoa to Auburn, five miles from the former and fifteen from the latter, and eight to Aurora. The farm has a southwestern exposure, and abounds in fruit of several varieties. Hay, grain and dairying comprise the principal revenues. The dairy products are taken to the Skimming Station at Venice Center. The farm is named from the expansive view obtained from its fine buildings, in fact, this is one of the attractive homes of the town, located near the proposed line of the Auburn and Ithaca Electric Road. The buildings are in good repair, and with the stock and fields, are supplied with running water from never-failing springs and wells. There are several acres of mixed timber. Its ownership record only goes back to John Hutchinson, who sold to Silas Hutchinson; the latter residing here until his death, and from his heirs it passed to the present owner, C. F. Crawfoot. Postoffice address, Venice Center. He is a native of Cayuga County, born in 1843, and married Miss Ann Hutchinson in 1863. He is at present Road Commissioner, having held the office for a term of years; he is also a veteran of the Civil War, enlisting in 1862, and serving in the Ninth New York Volunteers until his honorable discharge by reason of disability in 1864.
