The Ossipee Lake
has a fascinating history of New Hampshire. Originally known as Wigwam Village, and then New Garden, the town was named for the Ossipee Indians, one of the twelve
Algonquian tribes. It was once the site of an Indian stockade the lake via the Ossipee. The fort near the lake was designed to protect
the tribe from theMohawks in the west. In 1725, the Indian
stockade was destroyed, and then rebuilt by Captain John Lovewell. Ossipee Lake’s water leaves
the eastern end and go into the Saco River. These small paintings are a subtle palette of an island on the lake.
