This is a photo of the Short homestead taken circa 1860. The house is located about a half mile south of the village of Hemlock NY on the main road. There is a gathering of the Short family on the porch but none of them have been identified. Behind the house is the Short Cemetery where several of the original family are buried. The cemetery can be accessed via the entrance to the Hemlock Sportsman’s Club.
