Gallery | Vrooman's Nose
Vrooman's Nose is a unique geographical feature at the edge of the Schoharie River Valley near Middleburgh, NY. Schenectady resident Adam Vrooman purchased it, along with the surrounding land, in 1712 from the resident Native Americans, who called it "Onistagrawa" (Corn Mountain). The property was established as "Vroomansland" and the mountain became known as Vrooman's Nose because of its natural, nose-like profile. It sits like an island in the valley, removed from the neighboring mountains except for a narrow ridge and serves as the focal point for any view from the valley or the mountains that surround it. Whether it is wrapped in winter white, the green of summer or the spectrum of autumn color, from any vantage point, it inspires those who look upon it.
