Long Description:
This old cobblestone building was built using local field stones, being larger and rougher than the lakeshore stones which are usually smaller and smoother, and more commonly used in cobblestone construction. The building was built around 1824, perhaps earlier, and is believed to be one of the earliest cobblestones in North America. It has served the local community as both a Methodist Church and as a schoolhouse, until around 1935, when local schools were all centralized. It is now sitting empty and the local village is looking for assistance to save the old structure for its historical significance.
