Ossipee Lake (beyond the water)

Ossipee Lake is an Abnaki indian name that means "beyond the water".

Ossipee Lake is a lake located in eastern New Hampshire, in Ossipee and Freedom, New Hampshire which are located in Carroll County. The lake is 3,245 acres and is the sixth largest lake in New Hampshire. The primary inflows of the lake are the West Branch River which enters from the north, the Bearcamp and Lovell rivers which enter from the west, and the Pine River from the south. The primary outflow of the lake is the Ossipee River which exits the eastern end of the lake. The Ossipee River flows into the Saco River in Maine.

Ossipee Lake serves as a large tourist site and contains many lakehouses, cabins, and cottages on its shoreline. It also is a good source of fishing. It contains fish such as as Brown trout, Rainbrow trout, Brook trout, Lake trout, Chain Pickerel, Largemouth bass, Smallmouth bass, Yellow Perch, White Perch, Sucker, Brown Bullhead, Rainbow Smelt, and Burbot.

Since "Ossipee" is an Abnaki name, obviously, the Abnaki indian tribe inhabitated the Ossipee Lake region. The Abnaki's were one out of the two New Hampshire indian tribes. However, the Abnaki's inhabitated mainly central and northern New Hampshire while the Penacook indians inhabitated mainly southern New Hampshire. It is said though that the Penacook indians are very closely related to the Abnaki indians.
