Brown's Mount Association
 As breathtaking as the view may be from atop Brown's Mount, its beauty is perhaps best beheld while trekking the seven miles of trails that climb 500 feet above sea level. For it's on those paths that the limestone-capped mount hints at its rich past. Fossil deposits in the cliffs and rocks remind hikers that this was prehistoric shoreline. A wave of raised earth runs near the western slope, the remnant of wall dating back hundreds, possibly thousands, of years. The mount is home to varied populations of plants and animals, including endangered species. Once threatened by development, Brown's Mount, a former farm, writer's retreat and Indian settlement, has been an education center since its purchase in the early 1990s by the Museum of Arts and Sciences. The museum sold the property to the state in 2000 but continues to conduct programs there.
