Usquepaug At The Falls by Keith R Wahl, Made From RI Gallery

There is pride in the many indigenous names preserved in Rhode Island. These are the names that preserve history and confound spell-checkers. In this case in the historic area of Usquepaug, we understand that the meaning was actually an indigenous name borrowed from the Scots-Gaelic word for "whiskey" (Uisge Baugh, meaning water of life or whiskey).

On this day the water runs freely over the falls. And it is lively.
