People used the estate to access the Lawrenceville Mines, which are Iron Mountain's property. Two dogs fell through the airshaft there, one died , one probably will be put down. We have signs up; people ignore them.

Sorry to hear that. The trails on the estate are a real treasure. I look forward to when they are open again.

Oh no, did something happen? Tornado?

Everyone ok?

Mother's Day is usually the official start of the Century House Season: The museum opens, some refreshments are available, and Steven Schimmrich gives a geology walk.
That's not happening this year until people can gather together again safely.

Meanwhile, this postcard is in the museum in the "Ulster County Vacation" display case:
