Uncas's rock regained

Mohegans Get Back Sacred Rock Linked To UncasCochegan Rock, a gigantic freestanding boulder surrounded by 92 wooded acres, is believed to be the place where 17th-century Mohegan Chief Uncas met with his tribal council.

Monday the Mohegan Tribe regained possession of the historic rock and the land around it and is bound by the deed to preserve it in its natural state. The tribe also will honor covenants with the previous owner, the Boy Scouts of America's East Hartford-based Connecticut Rivers Council, so Scouts can continue to camp and hold activities on the land.
