Town of Lockport
Map Site 21: Stone Road

Lewiston Trail lead to Batavia in Genesee County. Some of the Lewiston residents fled this way after their village was burned.

Lewiston residents heading toward Batavia followed the Stone Road. Stone Road, also known historically as the Lewiston Trail and the Old Niagara Road, connected the Ridge Road with what is now Chestnut Ridge Road at the Cold Spring Cemetery. It was called Stone Road because stones were used in its construction rather than logs or planks. The Lewiston Trail continued on through the Town of Royalton into Genesee County to Batavia. From there it took a southeasterly turn to Geneseo in Livingston County. It was about a 50 mile journey between Lewiston and Batavia.
