Saugus River
saugusriver425.jpg
The Saugus River is approximately 13 miles long and drains a watershed
of approximately 47 square miles. 

Lake Quannapowitt in Wakefield forms the headwaters of the river which
meanders through Wakefield, Saugus, and Lynn before emptying into the
Rumney Marsh / Pines River estuary in Revere.

Tributaries include the Mill River, Hawks Brook, Shute Brook, Strawberry Brook,
Town Line Brook, Crystal Pond Brook, Beaver Dam Brook, and the Pines River.

The watershed encompasses all or part of the following 11 communities –
Everett, Lynn, Lynnfield, Malden, Melrose, Peabody, Reading, Revere, Saugus,
Stoneham, and Wakefield.

Although Native Americans called the river Aboutsett ("winding stream"),
European settlers first called it the River at Saugus. 

In early European times, alewives and bass were harvested from 1632 onwards.
The Saugus Iron Works used water power from the river in 1642, and the river
soon attracted grist mills, chocolate mills, wool and flannel mills, and a tannery.

     The word CLUE originally meant "ball of twine." 
     That's why you "unravel" clues to solve a mystery.
