Once located in The Exchange front yard
But since re-coordinated by this bard,
The cache is not for the faint of height,
Yet, one finds it hidden in plain sight.


The Town of Harford, surrounded by creeks & forested hills, attracted early pioneers from Connecticut who ran successful gristmills, sawmills, distilleries & farms in this area. These days, Harford provides the setting for the Cornell Research Station, an extensive teaching & research facility.

Harford offers recreational opportunities that include hiking and biking trails (joining the Finger Lakes Trail system), and an abundance of trout fishing.

The Exchange, next door to the Harford Town Hall, has been a town hub since early settler Jacob Hemingway built it in 1820. The first Harford town meeting was held here in 1846.

Initially, the inn served as a stagecoach hostelry, town post office and owner’s residence. Edmond’s Store followed and then the Tennant Store from 1915-1990, lived in and operated by the Tennant family for three generations. More recently, the Ivanoskis family operated the Harford Exchange as a bakeshop, café and ice cream parlor, and through their efforts have preserved the site for future generations.

In the summer of 2013 The Exchange again changed hands, and the new owners of this historic location plan a re-adaptation of the property to a bed & breakfast inn.
