George Engs Slocum
George Engs Slocum, circa 1906

The story of this tiny micro-conurbation in the Town of Wheatland has been told by Carl F Schmidt, an architect, and George Engs Slocum, a local figure whose history of the town appeared in the very early twentieth century.

Schmidt wrote History of the Town of Wheatland: Scottsville Mumford Garbutt Belcoda Beulah Wheatland Center and published it in June 1953. In 1998, the Wheatland Historical Association commissioned the Higginson reprint.

The more titularly economical Slocum wrote Wheatland, New York in 1906; it was published posthumously in 1908. The original publication of Slocum's history was a private printing of three hundred fifty copies in Scottsville, by Isaac Van Hooser. It is the location of the Wheatland Baptist Cemetery, listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.
