Excerpt from New Gazetteer and Business Directory: For Livingston County, N. Y., For 1868 Roosting Place, Devil's Breakfast Table, 850. At Portage, nature and art combine to produce the most delightful effects. The great railroad bridge is as much a wonder as the scenery around it. All the southern portion of the county is full of beauty, and Portage Falls are visited by thousands of people every season. The park-like meadows around Geneseo are unequalled in America. The finest of the old forest teces still remain, and some of them have attained immense size. It was always a region of famous trees. There was the Big Tree Road, and a celebrated treaty was held under the Big Tree itself. Some of the old oaks are over 30 feet in circumference. The Sulphur Springs at Avon have long been celebrated. They were well-known to the Indians who understood their medical properties. The Seneca name for them was Can-a wau-gus, (stinking water). When the country was first settled, these springs were surrounded by a dense cedar marsh, and their waters ﬂowed into a large pond, with a margin of pure White sand.
