I don't remember anything about this one. Note that if you enter
coordinates into a topozone.com link you get a small non-scrollable view
as a teaser, when I did this it looked like the old map.
I hope you are correct because having a "possible" as a state prominence
point would be a bummer.

This one hits close to home - I hiked Hanging Hills
last summer, and drove through CT two weeks ago.
The contours on the online Dover Plains NY/CT
maps date from planetable surveys in 1944,
and the 1:100,000 map
shows Preston Hill higher.
The Dover Plains map was printed again in 2000 - tried to
download it from
but it looks like the same old contours. The Liebre Map
download is the photorevised 1984 vintage.
Last resort will be a library visit - if that
does not pan out will add "Chapel Hill" as
possible CT #1.
