From The Windham County Transcript, March 8, 1973

Dark Lantern Hill on Route 6 in South Killingly received its name from the fact that when the stage coaches ran over this road on their way to and from Providence there were so many hold-ups the stage drivers put out their lanterns so as not to be noticed. Beyond Dark Lantern Hill was still another hill, one nearest the Rhode Island line. It was called Little Rest Hill.
