This is a real photo post card (RPPC) that is entitled “Sagoyewatha Inn and Brookside Cottages, Seneca Lake”. It is postmarked September, 1909. I believe it was located near Valois, New York (Hector). Hector is a town in the northeastern corner of Schuyler County, New York. The town is named after Hector Ely, who at the time was the firstborn son of the town founders. Hector is west of Ithaca, New York. The area was originally under the dominion of the Iroquois. The region became part of the Central New York Military Tract, land used to pay soldiers of the American Revolution. The area was first settled around 1790, but the first permanent settler arrived in 1791. The town of Hector was formed in Cayuga County in 1802 from part of the town of Ovid. However, Hector (including the hamlet of Reynoldsville) was part of the adjacent Seneca County from 1804 to 1817. Hector became part of Tompkins County when the county was created in 1817, and then became part of Schuyler County in 1854 in the part contributed by Tompkins County. Hector is a town in the Finger Lakes region. Valois – A hamlet north of Hector hamlet. Some soiling/staining. All questions are welcome. Please read the following TERMS before bidding.

GENERAL: I have been a member in good standing of the ebay community for over ten years. I both buy and sell on ebay and I do this strictly for fun. I try to treat all of my customers as I expect to be treated and this tends to make for a very pleasant experience for both parties. I have never had a justifiable negative nor neutral feedback.
AUCTION: Please keep in mind that this is an auction. All items are used (not new) and are sold “as is”, “where is”. A successful bid binds that bidder to a legally binding contract. Always ask questions before bidding.
CONDITION: Condition is always subjective. Therefore, seller always provides a scan(s) for the potential buyer to determine condition. Some scans may be enlarged for better viewing. Additional scans may always be requested by serious potential bidders. Seller does not usually provide a scan of the reverse of an item. The condition of the reverse of an item may be different from that which is displayed. All scans (unless enlarged or stated to be modified) are made using standard factory settings of the scanner. For stereoviews, seller will display two scans - one of the entire front and usually one of the right side. (A scan of the right side does not ensure that the left side is of the same condition.)
PAYMENT: Seller accepts paypal and some other methods when allowed by ebay. If using paypal, buyer must abide by all paypal and ebay policies and must pay for the item with one payment and must accept the item at the shipping address that is on file with ebay. Payment is to be received by the seller within three business days of the close of the sale listing. New York State sales tax will be added to the total cost of the item (including shipping, handling and insurance) when the item is shipped to an address located within New York State. Should buyer claim to be exempt from New York State sales tax, buyer must deliver to seller an original signed (properly filled out) New York State resale certificate. Please note that shipping will be delayed until the original document is received by the seller. Please keep in mind that New York State sales tax only applies for items shipped to a New York State address.
SHIPPING: Shipping will be made to U.S. addresses only. The United States Post Office is used to ship all items. Most items are mailed First Class. The seller reserves the right to ship by media mail when appropriate. Shipping will include insurance (or self-insurance) and delivery/signature confirmation. The shipping charge is often significantly less than the actual cost of shipping an item when all legitimate costs are taken into account. Multiple like purchases will be combined at no addit...... read more
