Nimpuc Lake

Nipmuc Lake was used by the Nipmuc Indians who settled the greater Worcester Massachusetts area. The name Nipmuc means “by the freshwater lake”. The Indians used the lake until King Phillips War in 1676 and the establishment of the town of Mendon in 1667. The lake was then used by white settlers for agriculture and then in the mid 1800’s it was a place wealthy people went to vacation and it was a resort area.  The lake today is owned by the town of Mendon and is used for recreation. The Upton/Mendon Regional High School is also named after the Nimpuc Indians.
