LOL!! I'd like to think so, but I bet they were busy getting ready for the harsh winters that came soon after the falling leaves. This month's full moon is the Hunter's Moon, isn't it?

As recently as 1900 there were still indians living at the head of the harbor in bridgeport. Don't know what kind of structures they lived in though.
The 'hollow' section of town was a tidal marsh- all filled in now. It would have been great to see it.

When stading at ther BPT RR Station waiting for the train I often looked out past the Ferry terminal and thought ..how beautiful the harbor and BPT must have looked before man corrupted it.

And how beautiful the water must have been to see, before the raised railroad bed and highway cut off the view.

There are many Native American artifacts we had found along the Wepawaug River and it's run off which ran through the border of my former residence in North Milford,Ct. We several years ago found arrowheads...pottery and other items embedded in the mud after a huge rainstorm. We called Yale who sent over a person that authenticated our findings. We were happy to give them over so they may use them in their Museum which they remain. I am certain there must be more along that Wepawaug and it's run off stream located North Street and flowing all along to Flax Mill and between the houses Woodruff(Milford)Robert Treat Dr
