Cobblestone Architecture — 7 Comments

  1. The two top photos are from the Arts and Crafts period. They aren’t even close to being cobblestone construction. Cobblestones are small stones and round – water washed for thousands of years, The third photo is of a cobblestone house in Canandaigua, N.Y. that’s a Bed and Breakfast. The porch, however, is not original but was added some 90 years later during the Arts and Crafts Period of the 1920s or 30s.

  2. I don’t get this. Weren’t there cobblestone/mason buildings long before the early 19th century? How is this design developed in the NE USA different from stone and mortar houses built in Europe long before this?
