Reference Information - An extensive menu of general topics about cobblestone structures.
In order to clearly identify each cobblestone structure throughout the Roudabush study, a unique code is assigned for all Towns, composed of an abbreviation of the first three letters of the Town where the structure is located, followed by a number assigned to that structure. The code is not a County reference unless otherwise noted, or the structure is located out of New York State where it may be either without notice.
Editor's Note: On October 1960 the Cobblestone Society and Museum were formed to bring the history, uniqueness and preservation of cobblestone structures to public attention. The task was a challenge to not only obtain a physical presence of a museum building and eventually more, but to collect documentation and imagery by simultaneously going back in time starting in the 1820's, as well as today, and the events and plans for the future. Inevitably, the collection of knowledge, documentation and imagery available since October 1960 is extensive and needs a revamped catalog. The digital age has provided a solution with the Cobblestone Info Base, a virtual library and repository for all known and found information on authentic cobblestone structures circa 1825 to 1868+ in all of North America. My task, an hour after hour of effort, is to catalog, import and maintain the documentation and imagery at hand from whatever source into the Cobblestone Info Base. The ability to link and cross-link to tie related information together give worldwide users access hopefully to all content that is available at the moment, likely an ongoing task for years to come.
