GAINES – The Cobblestone Museum hired a new director who wants to invite the community and outside residents to experience the National Historic Landmark near the intersection of routes 104 and 98 n Gaines.

Taylor Daughton grew up in a farmhouse from 1860 in the Town of Greece.

“It’s near and dear to me,” she said about the museum and its glimpse into 19th Century life. “I hope to get the local community excited about what they can bring to the museum.”

Although Diane has lived in Orleans County for over twenty years she did not know much about the Cobblestone Museum until eight years ago when she began taking her Genesee Community College history students on tours of the museum. Diane was immediately impressed with the immense architectural, cultural, educational, and religious history preserved in the museum’s historic buildings and collections.
