Naming a trail

Updated: Feb 5


UPDATE - On Monday, August 14, 2023, the Select Board voted 5-0 to name the 2.4-mile trail the Mohican Recreational Path, to "recognize and and honor the indigenous people who first settled this area." See iBerkshires


The multipurpose trail recently built stretching from Syndicate Road to the Spruces Park needs a name and we need your help!

 

According to an article in iberkshires - "Originally, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation had dubbed the route the "Mohawk Trail," but the town took those signs down after residents noted that it would be a misnomer in an area where the indigenous people were ancestors of what is now known as the Stockbridge-Munsee Mohican Tribe."


If you have a suggestion for a name or would like to help out by being part of group considering names - contact Town Manager Bob Menicocci rmenicocci@williamstownma.gov , or the Select Board select-board@williamstownma.gov or Andrew Groff at agroff@williamstownma.gov.


There'll be a ribbon cutting ceremony if a few months and it's be wonderful to have name at that time.
