"A river is more than an amenity, it is a treasure". ~ Oliver Wendall Holmes

The Annaquatucket was known for carrying alewife (a fish that is a member of the herring family and necessary to the Native Americans in the region). According to "Native American Placenames of the United States" by William Bright, "Annaquatucket" may mean "at the end of the river" ("at the end of" plus "-tuk" interpreted as "river" and "-et" meaning place.
