The community was named after the Algonquian word for "at the long tidal river". The name is a reference to its location on the Kennebecasis River. It is also known as Quispamsis Village, and has been referred to by locals as Q-Town or simply Quispamsis. Quispamsis was incorporated in 1973 when it separated from Hampton Parish and became a Local Service District (LSD). In 1988, it became an incorporated village within Kings County with full municipal status under provincial law. On April 1, 1995, local residents voted in favour of changing its status from village to town; this change took effect on January 1st 1996. As of 2018 there are no longer any villages in New Brunswick that have not become towns or cities. Its current mayor is Brian Gallant who replaced Ted Boudreau following his election as Premier of New Brunswick. The Town's motto since becoming one has been "A great place to live.".
