What became Waterplace in the early 1990s began as a large salt marsh fed by the small Woonasquatucket and Mashassuck rivers, but 350 years of history has transformed it - several times. In Puget Sound, shoreline parks sometimes have several interpretive signs denoting how an area has changed since settlement in the 1860s. At Waterplace, the 1860s sign is the sixth of eight. Two hundred years of European History had already transformed the landscape several times over.
