So I'm carving a stamp for the Saugatuck Trail in Connecticut -- the stamp actually says "Saugatuck Trail" and red ink will be recommended -- and my neck gets stiff from carving, so I pop online and check AQ and the first thing I see is "Serial Killers in Saugatuck." Mind blown.

Well now this is interesting. I didn't know there was a Saugatuck in Michigan, so I googled the name origin. Apparently a postmaster in Michigan was familiar with the name from Connecticut, and suggested it because it means "mouth of the river". The place names in Connecticut originated with an Paugussett Indian village located at the mouth of what is now called the Saugatuck River (that area at the mouth is still called Saugatuck, a neighborhood of Westport). Part of the Saugatuck River was dammed to create a large reservoir for drinking water, and that's where the Saugatuck Trail is. Nice little connection there.
