Stone Hall was a building on the campus of Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, named after John Lemuel Stone, a CALS professor of farm practice during the early 1900s.[2] It no longer exists.[citation needed]

It was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1984. It is still listed on the National Register.[1]

It is listed erroneously as the building is no longer there.[citation needed] East Robert Hall and Roberts Hall are two other former Cornell University buildings that were and are similarly listed.

The building that is currently located here is also named Roberts hall. It houses the offices of the Dean of CALS, the NYS Experiment Station Director, and the Director of Cornell Cooperative Extension. It is linked by a breezeway to Kennedy Hall on the South. From the aerial view shown here, the two buildings appear as one.
