Who is NeVar and NeVara?

Nevar© and his mate NeVara© are a not so common raven pair. Together, they have become the mascots and narrators for this website.

Ravens were chosen for their intelligence, sociability and adaptability. They have been companions to humankind for all of recorded history and are a rich part of our folklore. To some ravens are evil. To others they are revered as noble spirits. And so ravens were chosen to tell the story of Mount Tom and why the ridge that makes up the spine of Holyoke should be preserved largely as undeveloped open space.

Should you have skills in animation, graphic arts, audio and video recording, photography, voice-overs, research, law, and would like to help tell the story of the Mt. Tom Range, please leave a comment under Recent Posts.

B17 Memorial

07B17mem

The B17 Memorial, on the service road to the top of Mount Tom, stands in memory of 25 returning servicemen of WWII whose lives, while in route from Goose Bay Labrador in 1946, came to a close when their aircraft crashed near this site. The memorial stone is engraved with the symbols of the various branches of military service, brief words about the crash, names of the servicemen and a prayer by Norman Cote, originator of the memorial. The site is funded by people like you and maintained by dedicated volunteers.
