Acquired by the City of Norwich in 2010, the area has historical significance to the community and has remained a sacred part of Mohegan Tribe history since 1643. The 1.2-acre landmark along the Yantic River is the site of the culmination of the Battle of Great Plains between the Mohegan and Narragansett Tribes. This tour will travel from the planned Uncas Leap Heritage Area to the Royal Mohegan Burial Ground and will explore the deep significance of the Mohegan Tribe’s heritage and its connection with the City of Norwich.
