Less than two years ago, plans to preserve the Indian Leap landmark on the Yantic River appeared destined to fail as development seemed imminent, but this year, the city acquired the land through a tax forfeiture, bringing preservation closer to reality. Bill Champagne, president of the Norwich Historical Society, and state Rep. Melissa Olson, D-Norwich, are working with the National Park Service, city officials and representatives of the Mohegan Tribe to change the site into a cultural landmark.
