Stockbridge Tribe seeks to recover ancestral homeland at Fenn Farm

STOCKBRIDGE (May 12, 2023) — On a pristine, forested property at the northern tip of Monument Mountain is Fenn Farm — 351 acres of scenic undeveloped land.

The ancestral homelands once belonged to the Stockbridge Munsee Band of Mohican Indians. Last fall, it went on the market for $3 million following the death in July of owner Clover Swann, the artist, author and longtime member of the Stockbridge Land Trust.

Last week with the assistance of the Stockbridge Land Trust, Berkshire Natural Resources Council, and the Town of Stockbridge, the tribe submitted a $2.5 million funding application to the state’s Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness Action Action Grant program for the purchase and conservation of the property. Grant awards are expected to be announced this summer.
