Rosendale's legendary mines include the Widow Jane Mine, now a historical site maintained by the Century House Historical Society and the inspiration for the distillery's name.In 1830, commercial mining began in New York's Hudson Valley region, where the town of Rosendale sits. By 1840, Rosendale had 13 cement companies operating 16 sites collectively producing 600,000 barrels of cement annually. By 1891, half of the cement used in North America was Rosendale cement. Millions of barrels of cement made their way to market via the transportation links provided by the D&H Canal, river, & railroad. By the end of the 19th century, the superior quality of Rosendale cement was known worldwide and was actively used in the construction of some of America’s most enduring landmarks. Everything from the Brooklyn Bridge, the Washington Monument and Grand Central Terminal used Rosendale cement and all in all thousands of important public works and private projects all got their start underground in the limestone mines of Rosendale. Rosendale cement was the foundational building block of the 19th century and the wonder material of its age.The Rosendale mines are part of a 32-square-mile shelf of limestone that sits between the towns of High Falls and Kingston, in Upstate NY. A place called Joppenbergh Mountain became the epicenter of the local mining industry, as the quality of its limestone was ideal for being ground into cement. The limestone found here is so tough in fact that the core of Iron Mountain's essentially bomb proof site near Joppenbergh Mountain in the Beach Mine, and for that reason, originals and contemporary copies of the world’s most historical documents, such as the Magna Carta and Declaration of Independence, are stored here in these natural vaults.
