Newfound Lake New Hampshire

Painted Sky Over Newfound Lake

Newfound Lake is considered one of the cleanest and deepest lakes in New Hampshire (183 feet deep). Two and a half miles wide and seven miles in long, it is fed by 8 springs and has 22 miles of shoreline.

Newfound, originally called Pasquaney by First Nations People of the Abenaki Nation means "place where there is birchbark for canoes" or "place of the birches".  

At one time there was an active movement to restore the original name but, like many other places, the final decision was made on the difficulty of remembering the name and Newfound was certainly more easily recalled so its name stuck.
