This Day in Dayton, 12 April

“Courier,” 12 April 1838:

240 Acres of Land for sale.

The subscriber wishes to sell two hundred and forty acres of land, situated six miles from Lafayette, on the state road from that place to Indianapolis. 160 acres at the above is Wild Cat Prairie, and is within one mile of the town of Dayton—the above road passing through the centre of the land.  There is a beautiful mound for building near the road which overlooks a greater part of the prairie, and affords a fine view of the town of Dayton.  The other 80 acre lot is woodland and is about one mile from the prairie land.  Every foot of this land is dry and susceptible of cultivation; and as to quality there can be none better.  This can be made a most delightful farm, and is in the midst of a well improved and healthy neighborhood—only a short distance from the canal; and timber in abundance in the vicinity. Should any persons desire to purchase, the subscriber would refer them for further particulars to Messrs.  Ingram & Baird of Lafayette—or to Samuel Favorite, merchant, at Dayton, who will show the land if desired.  The title is indisputable.
