“Interesting Facts & History and Knowledgeable Guides”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Had a fun, interesting day today at Century House, Snyder Estate and Widow Jane's Mine. Our historian/guide was lovely and took the time to explain the history of the cement industry in Rosendale.

The mine itself is awesome! Very cool; light protrudes from the outside through various crevices and spaces, making it a beautiful place to visit.

“The cave has a lake!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

The museum is great, and the Widow Jane Cave, a former cement mine, anchors the place. The Cave has an underground lake! Sometimes they host concerts and parties. The Halloween vibe is the spookiest!
