Faint stain to bottom corner of pages. Unpaginated. A one-sided printed article on the Holland Land Office entitled A Living Monument by Charlotte Marcy Read, Genesee County Historian. The Holland Land Office building is located on West Main Street (New York state routes 5, 33 and 63) in downtown Batavia, New York, United States. It is a stone building designed by surveyor Joseph Ellicott and erected in the 1810's. It was the third and last office of the Holland Land Company, which owned almost all of what is today Western New York. Ellicott presided over the survey, sale and ultimate settlement of a vast tract of land. In 1960 it was declared a National Historic Landmark,[2][3] the first one in Western New York[note 1] and the only one in Genesee County. Today it is a museum, with exhibits about the history of the company and the region.
