New exhibition: Tunnels, Toil & Trouble: NYC’s Quest for Water and the Rondout – Neversink Story

A new exhibition is currently being installed at The Time and the Valleys Museum entitled Tunnels, Toil & Trouble: NYC’s Quest for Water and the Rondout – Neversink Story.

Scheduled to open in the spring 2013, this new exhibition will illustrate the history of the building of the Rondout and Neversink Reservoirs and the connecting tunnels, and how they fit into the Delaware Water Supply System.  Visitors to this exhibition will enjoy seeing large, colorful, eye-catching exhibit panels and video clips telling the fascinating story of the building of the Rondout and Neversink reservoirs and the importance of the system to New York City, as well as its impact on the local area. They will hear worker’s voices and the voices of those who lived in the towns, touch tools used in the construction, walk through a large replica of a tunnel and actually build a working dam model.
