St. Paul's Episcopal Cathedral
128 Pearl Street, Buffalo, NY

The Medina sandstone used for the church was quarried in the hamlet of Hulberton, east of Medina.

In 2005, three outdoor stairways and support walls, two on the church's main entrance on Pearl Street and one on Cathedral Street, were dismantled and reassembled and new foundations built. For the 2005 repairs to blend with the old stone, sandstone from Scotland and Germany was chosen.
