Rumbling Bald Mountain View
Formerly known as Bald Mountain, the “Rumbling” name was added in the mid-19th century when a strong earthquake caused the mountain to shake and give off sounds like thunder. Ironically, the quake is purported to have happened just as a traveling preacher was giving a sermon near the mountain, and it was believed that the “rumbling” was a direct sign from God that mankind had to “mend his evil ways”.
