Long Description:
The New York State Historical Marker in front of the house reads:

Herendeen Homestead
Built by James Herendeen
1832. Entrance porch added by
Josephine Herendeen 1932.

The home is still owned by Herendeen family.

Quoting from Cobblestone Quest:

"In 1932, Josephine Herendeen made this one of two known Ontario County sites where cobblestone construction was done in the 20th century. She added a cobblestone arcade to the south side where the basement (containing the original kitchen) is exposed, and added the entrance porch and stone piers on the front landing."
