Welcome to East Haven

The town of East Haven, located in New Haven County, is on the east side of New Haven Harbor in the Long Island Sound. First called East Farms, in 1638 settlers obtained the land as part of the purchase of New Haven. In 1785, after years of petitioning the General Assembly, East Haven incorporated, becoming a separate town from New Haven. By the late nineteenth century, East Haven had greatly reduced its size by selling a significant portion of its land to New Haven. Today, the Shore Line Trolley Museum in East Haven operates the Branford Electric Railway. The railway is the oldest continuously operating suburban trolley line in the United States.
