Oswenatchie House and Cottages, Waterford, Conn.
"...the Oswegatchie Colony, a summer resort area for the rich and playful that started to become popular in the mid-to-late 1800’s. The Oswegatchie House, the best known of the Colony’s hotels, took its name from the nearby quarry; it began as a boarding house for quarry workers. There is no mention, in the descriptions of boating and tennis and visits by President Woodrow Wilson and dancing at the casino which opened in 1915, of how the quarry itself came by the name..." patch.com / connecticut/ waterford/ oswegatchie
