 Note from Mike Tuccinardi on this 1907 dated card. The man standing near the hotel's corner is Will Howell, owner of the hotel when this picture was taken. He is holding his oldest son Peter.

As told by Burt Beers:
   "My earliest memories of Will Howell & his wife date to the early 1930s when lived in the large white house on the corner of Washington & North Streets. His son Pete and oldest daughter, Eleanor, were childhood friends of my mother's. The Howell's youngest daughter, Harriet, was an exceptionally attractive young woman.

   Young Pete Howell attended Hobart College, Geneva, NY after high school and then went to NYC, where he became an executive with the Bell Telephone Co. Daughter Eleanor married Zan Rossiter, son of an MD who practiced in Chemung in the 1930s. Zan became a journalist, starting with one of the Elmira  newspapers before moving to one of the big NYC dailies. Zan & Eleanor's son continued as a journalist for quite a few years, attaining some prominence before moving to Duke University where he may still work with that institution's public relations."

Attached is a picture of Virginia French's hayrake puller. I used to climb all over this thing.

Just for the record, French's farm was the first farm on the left going east on the Rotary Road, just after the intersection with Dry Brook Road.
