Sodus in Wayne County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Sodus Area Cobblestones
— Architecture of the Coast —
Early buildings were masonry throughout. In some later buildings, the stones were used as veneer over a wood structural frame.
Some buildings used uniformly shaped sandstone quions on the corners, others used limestone in a more random pattern.
Some buildings used uniform lake cobbles, others used fieldstones, roughly sorted. Patterns became more elaborate as the style evolved.
Lintels, structural units spanning openings, were often cut from large slabs of sandstone or limestone. In others cases [sic] several stone pieces were fit together in an arch. Still others used wood for lintels.
