Palmyra, Over Time

Palmyra, New York
In 2010, the population of Palmyra was listed at 3,408 people. What was the population at the time Joseph Smith Sr. moved there in 1816?
A)                 3,000
B)                 573
C)                 2,105
D)                 956

Yesterday’s answer:
(D) 7680 acres
Large farming corporations were organized for cooperative farming. One of these cooperative farms, the Western Agricultural Company voted to enclose one field for grain containing twelve sections of land, or 7680 acres.
By the way, this was not the only planned field of this size. A few others were in the works.
