A History Of Events And Happenings From Exactly One Hundred Years Ago

Cyclone Hits New York

Geneva, New York had been a Seneca Native American village settled by British then American colonists, abandoned in 1779 but resettled around 1793. It was incorporated in the early 1800’s.

On September 1, 1912 a cyclone landed in Geneva, New York. White Springs Farm and the immediate vicinity were hit hard as the cyclone leveled the main group of dairy barns. Four or five calves were killed but there was no loss of human life. A three-quarter ton dinner bell from one of the barns was found a half-mile away.
