Cobblestone architecture is common in the Finger Lakes Region as well as near the Lake Ontario shore to the north. The majority date from the 1820s to the 1840s. Many that were built as farmhouses are either Italianate or Greek Revival, while some of the larger mansions and commercial properties lean more towards Federal architecture. The cobblestones were collected from the shores of Lake Ontario and may have been created by glaciers.
