PHOTO FROM THE EARLY 1900'S - received from Shirley Schneider, great granddaughter of Albertus Larrowe, founder of Larrowe Mills, granddaughter of James E. and Amy Bell Larrowe who gifted the Larrowe home to the Town and Village of Cohocton in the mid 1940's. Notice the buffet in the photo, and the camera that took the photo reflected in the mirror. Evidence has been found that indicates the molding throughout the house was originally finished in gold leaf. The buffet is now back in its original space. The dining room table and six chairs are being restored as well. We hope to have them back in place for Fall Festival 2011. Stop by and take a look!
