Hutchinson River

November 12th, 2012



This waterway is named for Anne Hutchinson, a "courageous exponent of civil liberty and religious toleration" who moved to the area in 1642 after being banished a few years earlier from the Massachusetts Bay Colony, a patriarchal Puritan society whose leaders considered her a "hell-spawned agent of destructive anarchy".
