Welcome to Mystic. . . a wonderful place to live and work! Located at the mouth of the Mystic River, between Groton and Stonington, Mystic was originally a highly profitable whaling and fishing center that still provides opportunities for commercial and sport fishing to this day.
The Native Americans, the Pequots, called this area "missi-tuk". Missi means "great" and Tuk refers to a river driven in waves by the tides of winds. The Mystic River is actually a salt-water estuary fed by fresh water streams.
