Resource Toolbox

Formerly known as Narantsouac. Center of the missionary work of Father Rale among the Abnaki Indians (1694-1724). Now the site of a monument erected to him, 1833, by Bishop Fenwick. A mission was established here, 1668. The chapel and village were destroyed by the English during Queen Anne's War, 1705, and a dictionary of the Abnaki language, now at Harvard College, was carried off. After being again destroyed, 1724, the mission was restored, 1730.
