I had read an obscure note about some mines in the heart of Kingston NY and found them.

Image

This adit is not long for this world.

Image

The next series, little did I know you folks had already been there.

Image

Our lighting was not as good as yours.

Image

Noted a trail near the mine and followed it and found a drainage weir.

Image

Found a small adit, which we assumed was for drainage to the weir.

Image

On the hillside, four adits which appear to be dry.

Image

Too bad our lights were depleted.

Image

Next time!

At the first location something I'd not seen near a Dolomite Limestone mine, perhaps it's common, but I'm no geologist.

Tens of millions of fossils, mostly clam shells, embedded in sandstone.

The rest of the photo-set.

The lighting is not the best.

A test on what the large mine was used for.

It might explain all the brick, and definitely the hydrator.
