Temporary Exhibit Spotlight – “Tales of a Forgotten Day”: Myth and Memory at Lover’s Leap


"Tales of a Forgotten Day" explore the myth behind the place name Lover's Leap, looking at how folkloric traditions can tie misinformation to spaces. And in doing so, help to erase Native communities from the landscape. 

We would like to thank the New Milford Historical Society for there generous loan of the painting "The Cove at Lovers' Leap" by William Jewett, 1833 along with some other original materials from having to do with the Lover's Leap State Park, located in New Milford, CT.

This exhibit runs until July 1, 2019
