Cobblehurst

This photo, submitted by Hartland Historical Society member Kathy Curry, shows the west side of Cobblehurst, one of Harland’s several cobblestone homes. Constructed in 1818 by the Quaker Society of Friends, the building served as the first meeting house of the group. The Orthodox Friends Cemetery, adjacent to Cobblehurst, was begun by the Society of Friends in 1822. Cobblehurst is located at 8856 Ridge Road.
