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.
Our Current Exhibit
A New Deal for the
Hills and the Valleys
May 6 ~through~ Nov. 4
The museum's exhibition tells the story of the effect Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal program had on the Slate Valley. From improvements in roads and waterways to post office murals, many of the things around us today were completed during this time.
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.
