In 1835 John was one off the three founders of the scythe factory. In the spring of 1871 John Farr was elected president of the National Bank and he served in that position until 1888. Mr. Farr was by nature a cautious man, who counted the cost and hazard as well as the profits of every venture, and this conservative tendency had been increased in the school of experience. Yet, as he was a wise man of affairs, he seldom applied the brake to the wheels of progress, and in so far as his influence guided the affairs of these intitutions their course weas in the direction of a sound and healthy system that inured alike to their financial properity and to the benefit of the commercial interests of the community.
