The C.S. Taylor 10-acre orchard on Maple street was sold this week to E.C. Roehl, who recently moved here from Wisconsin. The sale price was $18,500. The tract is considered one of the best in the valley. Five acres are in 10-year-old Winesap, Spitz, Black Ben and Jonathan trees and five acres are planted to three-year-old Winesaps. Roehl will get a crop this year which is estimated to be worth $4,200. Taylor had lived on the tract for the last four years, purchasing it from Virgil Dunbar.
