Sketambough (Fort Wooster Park)

Located on Beacon Hill in Connecticut along the New Haven shore, Fort Wooster Park, Sketambough, is a memorial site for the Quinnipiac Indians and their culture. This area was chosen because fires were lit on these hills to alert the tribes of potential danger. Today, these areas have various memorials such as engraved marble pieces. The Quinnipiac Indians would migrate seasonally and when in the New Haven area, would hunt the various game of deer, raccoon, fox, moose, deer and wildcats, among many others. In 1638, colonial settlers met the Quinnipiac Indians and at first had a very peaceful relationship; the Quinnipiac Indians hunted while settlers were able to build dams. However, inevitable cultural conflict aroused and the Quinnipiac were forced into a treaty putting them on a reservation. Sketambough is a national park to help remember and appreciate the help and kindness the Quinnipiac Indians bestowed on the colonial settlers.
