Quispamsis

Quispamsis is a suburb in Kings County, New Brunswick of Saint John. It is located 20 kilometres (12 mi) northeast of Saint John, in the lower Kennebecasis River valley.The name is traditionally pronounced with a weak stress on either the first or last syllable. Newscasters and voice actors who haven't visited will sometimes put a strong stress on the second syllable; this sounds barbaric to some older residents.The original inhabitants of the area were the Maliseet First Nation, part of the Algonquin Federation. The name, "Quispamsis" was translated from the Maliseet language and means, "little lake in the woods", the lake being present-day Ritchie Lake. Acadians, British pre-Loyalists and Loyalists settled in the area around 1783, with many receiving land grants along the Kennebecasis and Hammond Rivers.Quispamsis amalgamated in 1998 with the nearby communities of Gondola Point and Wells to form the present town, covering an area of 60 km² and bordering the town of Rothesay to the southwest with the Hammond River along its northeastern boundary. Quispamsis is the fastest growing town in the province of New Brunswick.
