The history of Tucker Mountain starts when continents collide and an ancient seabed rises to high peaks.  Glaciers carve, forests grow, and humans arrive.  Who settled Tucker?  What are the stories behind the cellar holes and an abandoned house?  A history of Tucker Mountain, Newbury’s new town forest, includes tales of runaway sleighs, wandering sheep, death by fire and arson. Recent and historic photos and maps. 40 minutes.
