The site of the (allegedly) only killing of an Indian in all of the Newburys throughout all of the decades of Indian wars is located at 57 Indian Hill Street. The story behind this marker raises questions about the way we look back at the Indian wars and includes the tale of a New Jerseyan’s foiled plot to invade via the Indian River here in West Newbury.
