This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 43 pages of information about A Sketch of the History of Oneonta.

The village is rapidly growing, and new industries are multiplying.  A desirable water power could be furnished to drive the wheels of a large manufactory—­a subject that must sooner or later attract the attention of some capitalist.  Well-shaded streets and well-kept roadways add to the attractions of the village, while its surroundings of cultivated fields—­of hill-side and plain—­of wooded slopes and mountains—­render the scenery as grand and diversified as can be found in the Susquehanna valley.
