Touisset Wildlife Refuge, Warren

Touisset comes from the aboriginal name Toweset which is translated variously as “at the old field” and “at the corn field.”  Before the arrival of European settlers, and evidenced by shell piles and arrowheads unearthed by later residents, Touisset Point was, at least seasonally, inhabited by aboriginal people who enjoyed the bounty of the land, air and water. [from “Touisset Point and Community Club History“, by Rick Massie] Chace Cove was known as the summer camp of the Massasoit.
