The History of The Mount Agamenticus Region

The natural and cultural history on Mt. Agamenticus extends well beyond our archeological imaginations. The current landscape of Mt. A, which is inextricably tied to the Mountain’s geological and cultural history, is recognized for its rich bio-diversity and unique ecological features. Among the most noticeable and historically relevant ecological features at Mount Agamenticus are its thin topsoil and shallow bedrock, both of which have and continue to influence the appearance and management of the area.
