Selectman proposes river name change

WARREN—Of the 28 articles listed on Warren’s town meeting warrant, it is number 25, changing the name of the Baker River to Asquamchumauke River, which is unusual.
The Baker has long held the name Asquamchumauke although it may not be a well-known fact. Asquamchumauke is an Abenaki word which means salmon spawning place.
In a telephone interview with the Journal Opinion, selectman Charlie Chandler revealed he was inspired by seeing the name in connection with the local Asquamchumauke Valley Snowmobile Club
