Largest boulder to be returned to Mohegan Tribe

Cochegan Rock, the largest free-standing boulder of New England and a meeting spot for Mohegan Chief Uncas, is being returned to the Mohegan Tribe in Connecticut.

The tribe owned the boulder up until the 1700s. It was named for Cochegan, a tribal member who lived in a cave under the rock.

The boulder is currently under the jurisdiction of the Connecticut Rivers Council, Boy Scouts of America, but will be transferred to the tribe under an agreement. The tribe will continue to allow the Boy Scouts to use the land.
