ABM Logo Rosendale Cement Mines

This is part one of many, of our investigation of the Rosendale Cement mines in NY State. These mines are the largest we have been to, exceeding the size of all previous journeys. SO our visit on September 14th began with the La Favre Falls Cement Mine. This mine featured beautiful 70 degree stopes with 20 foot wide pillars.

The second visit of the day was to the Laurence Cement Mine, with over 1 mile of underground cavities. The mine was so large, that after a few hours inside, we were not even close to seeing it all.

More to come!
