Hiding down within the Hudson Valley is a piece of unique history that’s open to the public.
The abandoned Widow Jane Mine was once a main key in Rosendale’s booming cement industry. Rosendale cement was created after large deposits of dolomite limestone were found!
Aside from being a popular hiking and biking destination, this old mine has been used as a mushroom farm, trout nursery, supplier of whisky water, performance venue, and a recording studio.
