Jephtha Earl Cobblestone Farmhouse is a historic home located at Benton in Yates County, New York. The farmhouse was built about 1850-1860 and is an example of Italianate style, cobblestone domestic architecture. The main block is a two story, "L" shaped mass with a cross gable roof and pedimented front gable, connecting a number of wings. It is built of tiny, reddish oval shaped cobbles. The farmhouse is among the nine surviving cobblestone buildings in Yates County.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.[1]
