Of special historic interest is the Jacob Rutsen grave in Rosendale, near the site of his house, built in 1680, burned in 1911, and long known as Hardenbergh Hall, a place where General Washington was entertained. Also the gristmill of Jacob L. Snyder near the village, where cement was first ground for commercial use; the old fording places used by the Continental Army on Rondout Creek; Creek Locks, formerly Wagondale, with its many stone houses; Whiteport, formerly Green Kill, where a gristmill belonging to Charles DeWitt furnished flour for Washington's soldiers at Valley Forge and elsewhere; and the Binnewaters, one of which is now Williams' Lake, scene of the Senior National Amateur Athletic Union Long Distance Swimming Championship races in 1942 and 1943.
