The Homeville Of David Harum

Location: 25 South Main Street, Homer, NY
(42.63623648983646, -76.17821664232738)

It’s the winter solstice, the darkest night of the year, and just days before one of its most celebrated. Patrick Quinlan, a local farmer, has just sold off the last of his Christmas turkeys to O.B. Andrews & Co., now the present location of The Homeville of David Harum.

Patrick has $40.57 in his pocket as a prize for his fattened poultry. It’s unseasonably warm, a balmy 40 degrees, as he makes his way down Main Street for a quick haircut at Bill Jone’s Barber Shop (currently 13 James Street) and a pint before heading home.
