Got a copy of an old file from the very early 20th century of a body of water I grew up near in Massachusetts. In the old file is the original Native American name before the white settlers renamed it, and then was subsequently renamed by the U.S. military when it became military property. Was just curious what the NA name meant, but no responses yet from a local Native American and linguist. I've contacted two local museums with a reply from one but no idea what it means. Was thinking someone here in New England is into Native American history and might know a historian I can contact. It seems a lot of taxidermists are into this kind of stuff. Yeah I know this isn't specifically taxidermy but I no longer post in Current Events. Btw the Native American name of the lake that is now protected and undeveloped except for a swimming beach is Shabokin. Was changed to Hell Pond by the White settlers probably due to it depth in relation to surface area, and then to the trite Mirror Lake by the military. Here's what it looked like in 1911 and isn't much different today.
