Summary
Location map Pocumtuck Mountain, one of Franklin County's highest points at 1,872', used to be the location of Catamount Old Home Days in the late 1800s. The mountain was crowded with residents as well as honored guests, including a Massachusetts Governor at one point.

Jeeps took their toll on the land in the 1980s and part of the 1990s, however since their banning, Pocumtuck has become forgotten. More recently, the summit of the mountain has been closed to the public by the controversial owner.

Relics
Remnants of house near summit ledge, numerous old roads and cellar holes in the Catamount area east of the summit. Rumored World War II-era air field southeast of summit.
