How a Mountain Got its Name - The Legends of Jenny Jump   

1     Legend 1
 
2     Jenny was a nine-year-old girl who lived a long time ago. She lived in a small white house that was below a high cliff. One day she was playing on the cliff and picking berries when an Indian surprised her. She called to her father because she was very afraid. He called back "Jump, Jenny, Jump." She always did what her father told her, so she jumped from the high rocky cliff to her death.
 
3     Legend 2
 
4     One day Little Jenny and her father were taking some barrels of apples over the mountain to sell near the Great Meadow. Jenny sat on top of the load in the cart and tried to keep the barrels from falling. As the farmer and his daughter neared the crest of the mountain, they saw several Indians coming toward them. As they got nearer to the cart, the father called frantically "Jump, Jenny, Jump." Jenny jumped down and ran away.
