Mystic Neighborhoods - Pequotsepos

Pequotsepos Road connects Jerry Browne Road and Mistuxet Road on the eastern side of the Pequotsepos River in Mystic.

The names in the Stonington area come from the Algonquin dialect spoken by the Pequot-Mohegans. In the Indian language many words were made up of two or more elements. For example, Pequot-sepos combines Pequot, which stood for both the tribe and the river we call Thames, and sepos meaning "little river." We translate this as "little river of the Pequots."
