Marbletown was settled in 1669, and includes the village of Stone Ridge and the Hamlet of High Falls. The area is renowned for its vast collection of historic Dutch stone homes. The geography of the Town ranges from hilly upland, to verdant valleys, and winding streams. There are lovely natural scenery views all around including dramatic mountain and Shawangunk Ridge vistas, streams, and working farmland. The Rondout Creek features a beautiful waterfall in High Falls (thus its name). The area includes four nationally registered historic districts, plenty of historic homes, a canal museum, a library, and a performing arts center. Marbletown is part of the Rondout Valley Central School District, and is home to SUNY Ulster, a two year college providing quality undergraduate and continuing education on a state-of-the-art campus.
