A very dear friend lives in the beautiful Fort Hill housing complex, which is owned and managed by the Mohegan tribe of Connecticut and located in the town of Uncasville. It is named Fort Hill because the site was occupied, 13 generations ago, by the famous Algonquian sachem (paramount chief), Uncas. (By the way, although there is a character named ‘Uncas’ in James Fenimore’s The Last of the Mohicans, this is not the same person, nor is the Mohican tribe the same as the Mohegan tribe.)
While leaving my friend’s home one day after a meeting, I was struck by the beauty of the grounds and the stunning hand wrought gate at the complex’s entrance and stopped to take some pictures.
Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.
