Famous Battle Sites Are Found near Sheffield Cottages
Sheffield cottages were not always in a town named Sheffield. Instead, the town was originally called Outhotonnook. When translated, it means "over the mountain." Of course, the original name was around only during the early 18th century. In 1773, after the Sheffield Resolves, the town was renamed. Even in the early times, there were cottages for the residents. Another bloody battle occurred in Sheffield known as the Shay’s Rebellion. It occurred in 1787 and is considered the bloodiest battle in the area.
