Connecticut River

The largest river in New England, the Connecticut River originates at the Connecticut Lakes in northern New Hampshire and flows south, acting as the border between New Hampshire and Vermont before crossing into Massachusetts and then bisecting Connecticut and flowing into Long Island Sound at Old Saybrook. The Connecticut River, designated as an American Heritage River in 1997, was first seen by a Europen in 1614 when Dutch explorer Adriaen Block said up from the Sound. In the decades following the British and the Dutch built trading posts in Windsor and Hartford, respectively.

The largest river in New England, the Connecticut River originates at the Connecticut Lakes in northern New Hampshire and flows south, acting as the border between New Hampshire and Vermont before crossing into Massachusetts and then bisecting Connecticut and flowing into Long Island Sound at Old Saybrook. The Connecticut River, designated as an American Heritage River in 1997, was first seen by a Europen in 1614 when Dutch explorer Adriaen Block said up from the Sound. In the decades following the British and the Dutch built trading posts in Windsor and Hartford, respectively. Like most waterways, the Connecticut was a major transportation route for centuries and many industries were built along its banks. In the late 1800s, the river was used for massive logging drives from as far away as Canada. These days, the Connecticut River is used primarily for fishing and recreational boating, as communities along the river have discouraged further development along the banks and controls were enacted to clean up damage caused by industrial plants. Thanks, in part, to the Clean Water Act of 1965, the river has been upgraded from a Class D to a Class B river. « Show less
