Cobblestone has been used as a paving material for centuries. A quick look around our New England landscape and you will quickly encounter cobblestones in most cities and towns. In fact, a walk to grab lunch has us encountering alleyways and side streets ladened in the stuff. And that is just fine by us. Antique cobbles give off a sense of place and history, a worn patina and look of distinction not possible with new or manufactured stone.
