River that is 139 miles long and the river total fall is 1430 feet that flows across Massachusetts and Connecticut, it also drains into the Long Island Sound. Housatonic comes from the Mohican phrase and it means “beyond the mountain place.” Mohicans is an eastern Algonquian Native American Tribe. From 1932 – 1977, the river was polluted and receives the PCB pollution from the General Electric plant from Massachusetts. There is also an American nuclear weapon named after Housatonic but there is no fact whether it has anything to do with the river or other sources. The river is well known for recreational fly fishing and rowing.
