A Few Bits about Waramaug's Grave

“On the summit of Lover’s Leap, Chief Waramaug was buried. The spot, in the Hurd estate (not open), was formerly marked by the usual pile of stones built by passing warriors as a mark of respect, but the great house ( 'whose foundation and granite staircase sits overgrown like some Mayan pyramid, as well as an old chimney and castle-like turret,' according to was erected, and the main fireplace stands directly over the chiefs grave (page 465).” Connecticut: A Guide to Its' Roads, Lore and People by Wilbur Cross; Federal Writers Project  ~ Boston, Houghton Mifflin Co., 1938
