The Meaning of Sangamon

Sangamon Watch Company is named after a local river – Sangamon River which is 15 minutes ride away from our office in Springfield Illinois USA.

Sangamon is a Pottawatomie Indian word meaning the “land of milk and honey.” When Abe Lincoln was 21 year old in 1831, he resided nearby the river in New Salem where he built a flatboat and sailed to New Orleans. The team of Sangamon Watch Company choose the name of Sangamon to honor the rich history of Sangamon River and the region.
