Read More about Overlook Mountain
The ancient importance of Overlook Mountain is reflected in a Native American ceremonial stone landscape (CSL) present in Lewis Hollow. Consisting or stone constructions, subsurface hydrological features, and effigies with a connections to the constellations, these archaeoastronomy and landscape archaeology features represent unique resources of cultural significance. The research, identification and protection of such resources as sacred sites, is inherent in OMC’s core mission.
It’s time Overlook Mountain is honored and protected in a way that reflects its unique status and the immense contribution the mountain has made to humanity. The Overlook Mountain Center (OMC), through promoting cultural history, environment awareness, and community through collaboration, will act as a permanent human reflection of the mountain, honoring Overlook; the mountain that has given so much, to so many, in so many ways, for so long. OMC will create programming, exhibits and experiences that celebrate all aspects of Overlook Mountain, its’ past, present and future.
