Paul Cote leads family members and Meetup group to Abram’s Rock in Swansea

Local historian and Bristol Community College faculty member Paul Cote conducted a four corners blessing at the top of Abram’s Rock in Village Park behind the Swansea Town Hall.on November 3, 2019. Starting at Village Park behind the Swansea Town Hall and Library, Paul led a group of 27 to Abram’s Rock, a large conglomerate stone outcropping in the woods. There Paul told the story that Orrin Gardner wrote about King Philip and one of his warriors who had to jump from the rock three times to be readmitted to the Tribe. Walkers then climbed the back side of Abram’s Rock which stands more than thirty feet above the surrounding forest where Paul conducted a four-corners blessing in the style of the Pokanoket Tribe that occupied the area.  The group then walked to the top of Wildcat Rock neaby, Lewin’s Pond about a half mile away, and back to complete the three-mile route.
