Deeds have been recorded in the exchange of the Willard House in Weedsport, built in 1867, for a farm five miles from Fulton in Oswego county. The negotiations are in the hands of Woods, a local business and hotel broker. Property values involved aggregated more then $30,000.

The Willard House is a forty-room hotel, a combination of old and new structures, dating the oldest one back to post-bellum days.

The farm is a 175 acre tract devoted to general farming use. In the exchange all stock, tools and equipment, in addition to several substantial buildings on the land are to go to the new owner.

Those were the days, when you could swap a hotel for a farm. Nowadays you're lucky if you can get a decent lease after turning in an old car.:)
