County was taken from Ontario and Genesee counties in 1821. Greatest
length N. and S. 30; greatest breadth E. and W. 28 miles. Centrally
distant NW, from New York 360, and from Albany W. 224 miles. The surface
of the country is in some parts hilly, in others quite level, or but
gently undulated. Flats of richly alluvion border the Genesee river in its
course through the county from 1 to 2 miles in width, but a gravelly loam
predominates on the upland. The great staples are wheat, pork, and cattle.
Of the first, it is estimated that there is an annual surplus of over a
million of bushels.
