History

Prior the 17th century, the Pequot individuals create  d a territory across southeastern Connecticut. Historians, for a lot of years, believed that these people traveled in 16th century from the eastern part of New York. The archaeological facts that show the existence of individuals living in a place called Gungywump, located at the northwest of Mystic River to some extent, now implies that Pequot were native to southern Connecticut.

They constructed their village in 1665, overlooking Mystic River’s western bank known as Siccanemos. During that period, they took control of a significant amount of land that stretches toward Connecticut River to the west and Pawcatuck River to the east, giving them complete access to the waters. Furthermore, they had authority over a number of strategically placed terrains. The Five Nations of Iroquois to the northwest governed the land connected by the Hudson River and Great Lakes, which allow for doing businesses between the Dutch and Iroquois Nations. They were settled just far enough to become safe from any risks the Iroquois had create  d.

By the early decade of 18th century, three communities started to arise alongside Mystic River. The biggest community, now known as Old Mystic, was likewise called as Head of the River, as it sits where numerous creeks come together to the estuary of Mystic River. The other two communities, Groton and Stonington, are nestled farther down the Mystic River.
