The Catskills Sights

Blenheim–Gilboa Power Project Visitors Center

  • Industrial Site/Mill/Factory

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

Housed in a 1905 barn, the visitor center sits above the Blenheim-Gilboa pumped-storage project, which generates power by recycling water between two reservoirs. Hands-on exhibits explain the science of energy production; an enclosed porch overlooking the lower reservoir has exhibits of local fauna. Picnic tables are scattered between the historic outbuildings. Hiking trails lead to Mine Kill State Park.
