HOWARD - page 142

"Is an interior town of the county, located a little north-west of the centre. It was erected from Bath and Dansville, June 18, 1812. A part of Avoca was taken off in 1843, and a part of Fremont in 1854. It is bounded north by Fremont, Cohocton, and Avoca, east by Bath, south by Canisteo, and west by Hornellsville and a portion of Fremont. Its surface is mostly a rolling upland, forming a part of the dividing ridge between the Conhocton and Canisteo rivers. In the northeast part of the town are two small ponds, the waters of which unite with creeks near that section of the town formerly known as Goff's Mills. The soil of this town is a clayey loam.

At Howard Flats, though high, the soil is of a great depth. In a deep valley south of the flats the declivity of the hills shows the debris and outcropping of shale and slate. The streams are all small, and flow into the Conhocton and Canisteo rivers. The population of this town in 1890 was 1,934."
