Auburn, New York, In Brigham's Directory


From Brigham's General Directory of Auburn, Weedsport, Port Byron, Union Springs [1863 and 1864]...

It [Auburn, New York] is situate on the outlet of Owasco Lake on Nos. 46 and 47, Aurelius; one hundred acres of 46 belongs to W. Bostwick, inn-keeper, and the remainder to Robert Dill. The former has asked one hundred and fifty dollars for half acre lots, the court house being on his land, and the latter has asked three hundred dollars for a water lot on the outlet which is not navigable.  No. 47 belongs to the heirs of John L. Hardenburgh, and covers the best waters of the outlet, and a fine rapid stream. Auburn is eight miles from Cayuga Lake, three from Owasco Lake, and not seventy- five from Utica.
