Going to Gungywamp

standing stones at Gungywamp

What, where, or who is Gungywamp? To the ear, it is a funny name, half-Suessical and half-Germanic. The name is actually derived from the Pequot language, as the Pequot Indians lived here for a time. They were immigrants, of a sort, from upstate New York in the centuries just before European arrival.

On the map, Gungywamp is a dot in southeastern Connecticut—a location on private land, open to the public only by appointment.
