Nonnewaug Falls

User Rating: / 0

"Nonnewaug" is one of the most often used local Algonquian place-names in all of Woodbury, Connecticut. There is a river, a high school and school district, a road and much more with the word "Nonnewaug". Nonnewaug Falls is named after the Chief Nonnewaug, where a bronze tablet at the bottom of the falls can be found where the chief was buried. The word "Nonnewaug" is not defined in certain by historians of Woodbury, but the word can be broken down into pieces having different meanings. One conclusion to the meaning of "Nonnewaug" is "A Fishing Place (or Weir) in the Middle of the Open Area". This conclusion was made from the idea that the Nonnewaug tribes had Nonnewaug wigwams set up along this river where they would fish at a "weir", or open space of the river.
