Wallington Cobblestone Schoolhouse District No. 8 is a historic one room school located at Sodus in Wayne County, New York. The Federal style, cobblestone building is a one story, three bay, center hall gable roofed structure with a louvered, gable roofed bell tower.

It was built about 1834 and is constructed of irregularly shaped, multi-colored, field cobbles. It ceased to function as a school in 1950 and is now a local historical museum. The structure is among the approximately 170 surviving cobblestone buildings in Wayne County.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.[1]
