Significance: The Morgan Van Wagoner House embodies the characteristics of Cobblestone construction, a method of construction which was utilized in the area of Rochester, NY; during the period of the development of the Erie Canal. Built in 1848, the Morgan Van Wagoner House is an example of a mid-19th century vernacular rural dwelling; detailing is derived from the Greek Revival and Italiante styles. The foundation of a second building and two refuse deposits located in the immediate vicinity of the house also contribute to the significance of the property.
