This sketch of the famous Hornby Lodge was done by Thomas Cole when he stayed at the Lodge in 1841. The Lodge was the home of Elisha Johnson, a contractor working on the Genesee Valley Canal. Mr. Letchworth acquired a photographic copy of Cole's original sketch. This copy hung in his original Genesee Valley Museum and later in the Glen Iris Inn.
