Thank you to those of you who came to our guitar pickers contest Saturday, July 30th! We had a great time picnicking next to the Mettowee River and listening to our contestants preform. Congratulations to Bob Ray, who won first in the contest and thank you to our sponsors for this event! Enjoy some photos taken from the event below.
Welcome to the Slate Valley Museum!
The Slate Valley Museum celebrates the history and culture of the quarrying community that was established along the New York-Vermont border in the 1800s. Many of the Slate Valley quarries are still in operation, producing most of the colored roofing slate sold throughout the United States today.
Fall is here, take a scenic drive through the foliage and local slate quarries! Download the driving tour here.
Stay tuned for more information about our upcoming exhibit!
Stop by our Oral History page and listen to some of the people who live in the Slate Valley!
Listen to a short clip with Jack Williams, co-owner of Newmont Slate Co. We visited with him on June 10th with a group of visitors for a Quarry Tour.
