  Gaines District No. 5

From 1825 to 1860, over 900 cobblestone masonry buildings were built in New York State. Many can be seen along the Ridge Road on the way to Niagara Falls. Ridge Road runs through New York's fruit and wine country. This school house from 1849 is an example. It was in use until 1952. See also a separate travelogue on the Cobblestone Museum.
