The Famous “Geddes Farm,”
Located at Fairmount, three miles west of Syracuse N.Y., is offered FOR SALE at a low price, and on terms to suit purchaser. Or, if not sold at once, will be rented to desirable party for a term of years.
This noted farm consists of about 250 acres of land, nearly all of which is in the highest state of cultivation. The buildings include large, handsome family mansion, dairy rooms, stables for 100 cows, horse barn, hay and grain barns, feed mill, tenant houses — all in good repair. Also brook of clear water, mill pond, etc. A model dairy and grain farm.
Fairmount Station, on the NYC&HRR, is about 1/4 mile distant, and two trolley lines, each about one mile distant, running to Syracuse.
This farm will be sold for much less than the value of the buildings, to close estate. For particulars, apply to W. Judson Smith, Wieting Block, Syracuse N.Y.
[William Judson Smith was the son-in-law of Frances Terry Geddes, the widow of James Geddes Jr. She and her daughter’s family moved to Los Angeles around 1905.]
