BAUM HOMESTEAD IS E. SCHUYLER MUSEUM OF EARLY DAYS


The fact that Herkimer County cheese became world famous is something every proud Central New Yorker knows, but just how it came about is something shared only by a few individuals.

Those who are in the know are scattered throughout the nation. One of them is Horatio Peter Baum, 89, a retired principal and teacher who currently resides in West Englewood, N.J.

Named after the famous Horatio Seymour, of Utica, and his father, Peter, the kindly and spry educator is a direct descendent of the Philip Baum family which with other Palatine Dutch fled from the Rhine Valley in Europe to the Mohawk Valley in America, prior to the Revolutionary War.

Despite his age, Horatio P. Baum has a remarkable memory, especially in regard to the picturesque Baum homestead located On the Steuben Hill Road in Town of Herkimer, about 10 miles east of Utica. The farm has been continuously in ownership of the Baum family since 1826, when it Was purchased by Henry P. Baum (grandfather of Horatio) from Lawrence Rinkle.

The second owner was Peter Baum who was born in Newville in 1815 and at the age of 11, came with his parents to the "new farm". He lived to be 63 despite the fact that he was a semi-invalid.

The farm then became the property of Byron and Horatio Baum, brothers, then Mrs. Emma Baum Cramer and Mrs. Ida Mae Johnson, their sisters and current owners. Presently residing in the large mansion is Mr. and Mrs. Louis J. Sass. Mrs. Sass is a daughter of Mrs. Cramer.
