HILLSDALE FARM is owned by John F. King. Postoffice address, Poplar Ridge, and consists of sixty-six and one-half acres, located on the Auburn and Ithaca road, fifteen miles distant from the former, and twenty-four miles from the latter; Aurora is five miles, and Moravia ten miles distant. Grain and dairying are its principal resources, with an apple orchard of five acres, and other fruits, which give the farm a value second to none of its size. In addition to this, there is an ice-pond that supplies from three to five hundred tons of pure spring water ice. This is a fine home, with picturesque surroundings, and its proprietor is a popular farmer. The buildings are modern, the residence being supplied with hot and cold water, and heated with steam, conveniences not usually found in farm homes. Buildings and stock are supplied with water from wells and springs. David Armstead is recorded as a previous owner, from him to Isaac Jacobs, thence to William Otis, and from him to the present owner, in 1883. Mr. King is a native of Cayuga County, born in 1852; he married Miss L. H. Cook, a native of Ohio, in 1877; their family consists of one daughter, the wife of S. S. Parkhurst, of Poplar Ridge.
