Architecture in Rochester and Upstate, NY


  • Cobblestone Quest by Rich Freeman.  "Go on a Cobblestone Quest.  Why, during a mere 35 years in the mid-19th century, were approximately 700 cobblestone structures erected in Western New York State and no where else in such numbers? Learn the answer to this question as you drive any of the 17 self-guided tours mapped and described in “Cobblestone Quest - Road Tours of New York’s Historic Buildings” The cobblestone houses, churches, schools, barns, smokehouses, etc. are each unique works of craftsmanship that progressed to an art form just before the Civil War. It’s a testament to the fine workmanship that many of these structures survive today. Imagine the pioneers clearing the forest and tilling the land to unearth cobblestones or hauling them for miles by oxcart from the shores of Lake Ontario, then building a house stone by stone. It was arduous labor, but they did it with flair.
