Excerpt from Ithaca as It Was and Ithaca as It Is: With Thoughts Suggestive of the Future

Tompkins County was named in honor of Governor Tompkins. It was organized in 1817, having successively belonged to Onondaga, Cayuga, and Seneca counties.

Its area is about five hundred and eighty square miles, and contains three hundred and seventy-one thousand four hundred acres of land. Estimated at $30 per acre, and it comes to the round sum of $11,142,000. The land is composed of a rich alluvial and sandy loam soil, producing every variety of agricultural product common to the middle and western States. Premiums have been awarded for corn yielding one hundred and twelve bushels and thirty-eight quarts per acre; and wheat, fifty-six bushels and twenty-eight pounds. About three-fourths of the county is improved, and the average amount of grain grown yearly is hard to be surpassed by any county in the State - acre per acre. Indeed, the man of business and agricultural taste, passing through Tompkins county, will be most sensibly struck, with not only the prosperous appearance of the cultivator of the land, but also with the beautiful country, the variety of soil, and the promising crops. There are within the county, six prosperous villages, possessing wealth and intellectual worth of no ordinary importance.
