Yantic Falls is in Norwich, CT and was where groups of Mohegan Indians lived. The Yantic Falls is also known as Indian Leap Falls or Unca's Leap Falls. The story goes that in 1643 the Mohegans fought their rival, the Narragansetts, at this very spot and instead of getting the Narragansetts to surrender, the Mohegan Indians, in a way, made them kill themselves. The Narragansetts believed that they could jump over the falls to safety, but were unsuccessful in doing so which resulted in their deaths. That is how the falls got their names of Indian Leap Falls or Unca's Leap Falls because the Mohegan's leader was named Unca. Now the falls are used for industrial development.
