However there are examples of them much further away than one might expect. Local examples of this style include the Universalist Church in Cortland and Randall farm house off Page Green Road. There was once a cobblestone schoolhouse on Church street, a house on Tompkins street and another one in Harford. There are also existing examples of cobblestone foundations throughout the area.
