Mianus River

User Rating: / 4

Mianus River is a 20 mile long river.  It is known that the river continued north into the Hudson but the last ice age reared it of course to run south, where today it runs southeast running into Stamford and running parallel of the Greenwich border.

The word Mianus comes from the chief Sachem Myn Myano, which means "he who gathers together".  The chief and his tribe, The Siwanoys controlled from CosCob are to the Long Island Sound.  The Tribe came into conflict with Dutch and English settlers, however many of the settlers came in in the early 1600s bringing disease eventually weakening the Siwanoy tribe and forcing them of there land by confusing deals with colonial farmers.  Chief Myano was shot dead by Colonel Daniel Patrick who purchased most of Greenwich for twenty five coats.  Historians have no doubt the the fresh water of the Mianus River and  land next to it of the Mianus River Park were used by native Americans way before the European settlers cam in and took over.
