Lake Chaubunagungamaug, also known as Webster Lake, is a lake in the town of Webster, Massachusetts, United States. It is located near the Connecticut border and has a surface area of 1,442 acres (5.83 km²). The name comes from Nipmuc, an Algonquian language, and is believed to mean, “Fishing Place at the Boundaries — Neutral Meeting Grounds”. This is different from the translation, “You fish on your side, I fish on my side, and nobody fish in the middle”, a hoax believed to have been concocted by the late Laurence J. Daly, a Worcester newspaper correspondent. Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg, a 45-letter alternative name for this body of fresh water, is often cited as the longest place name in the United States and one of the longest in the world. Today, “Webster Lake” may be the name most used, but some (including many residents of Webster), take pride in reeling off the longer versions
