Juschanlee (p. 72)


Johann Cornies 1789 1846 leased a large parcel of land on the south side of the Juschanlee River in 1830 or 1831. By 1836 his holdings had increased to more than 8000 acres. Cornies used this land to develop a model farm which he named Juschanlee (Yushanlee). The estate had vast vegetable gardens, orchards, and man-made forests. He also raised large herds of sheep and cattle. The huge animal barns were equipped with an innovative gravity-fed watering system.
