THE WEPAWAUG RIVER 


The Wepawaug - not just a river - it is the title of each Class Yearbook and the school newspaper, The WETHOMAS - The Wepawaug Times of Milford High School. The Wepawaug River is named after the Wepawaug Indians, from whom the early town settlers purchased land in 1639. The Wepawaug River not only courses through our city but also has impacted our lives. Usually quiet and calm, the river went on a rampage in 1982, overflowing its banks and creating serious flooding that severely damaged Milford City Hall, the Milford Library and many other downtown structures on the aptly named River Street.
