Connecticut River "Quinetucket"

The Connecticut River is the longest river within the New England region; it is 407 miles long. The river begins up in the state of New Hampshire, making it's flow travel down south, through the borderline of New Hampshire and Vermont into Massachusetts then eventually leading into Connecticut. This river's existence came about 11,000 years ago, which is listed as the end of the last ice age. The first group of people who lived in the area of the river were known as the Paleo-Indians. Many more Native American groups populated the area as time went on. 

The Connecticut River's name, Quinetucket, comes from the Algonquin language and its meaning is "long tidal river". Adriaen Block, a Dutch explorer, named the river "Fresh River" after exploring and discovering it himself. His nickname did not stick around too that long though.
