The initial goal of the our exhibit Tales of a Forgotten Day: Myth and Memory at Lovers Leap was to separate fact from fiction, and to decolonize the place-lore associated with locations called 'Lovers Leap' in Southern New England. What came out of our research for this exhibition was a wider study of these toponyms and realization that we needed to continue the story.
This interactive map represents the toponyms associated with "Lovers Leap" and the stories that are associated with each location.
