History and info on Sunapee NH

Like many other towns, this one went through name changes before its
incorporation in 1781: "Saville", "Corey's Town", and then "Wendell",
for one of the Masonian Proprietors, John Wendell. The name "Sunapee"
was substituted for "Wendell" by the legislature in 1850. The town,
Lake Sunapee and Mount Sunapee share the name which comes from the
Algonquian Indian words "suna" meaning "goose", and "apee", meaning
"lake". The Indians called the area "Goose Lake" because it was a
favorite spot of wild geese.

The town has long been a popular tourist destination. The major
attraction was the pristine lake, once surrounded by a number of grand
hotels. Lake Sunapee is the only lake in New Hampshire with three
working lighthouses, built in the 1890s and maintained by the Lake
Sunapee Protective Asscociation. The town was the birthplace of the
rock band, Aerosmith.
