Must-see Landmarks

Two of the town’s charm comes in the form of timeless landmarks, such as Old Stone Church and The Center. The Old Stone Church, built more than 200 years ago, boasts a tall steeple you will not miss against the horizon. It is now home to the East Haven Historical Society and serves as a teen center. The Center, though not actually at the center of town, is the town’s hub. The town hall, library, and the police department all reside there. Nearby, the Town Green is a favorite site for festivals and concerts throughout the year.

Education First

Its focus on youth is just one of the many draws for residents and their families. In fact, education has been a priority since the early 1700s when the town built the first public school. By the end of the century, the system had split into four districts to service students in the area. The public school system operates nine schools with an average student to teacher ratio of 14 to 1. St. Vincent DePaul Catholic School serves those seeking parochial education. To supplement learning, the town offers The East Haven Library, where you can check out a few of its 60,000-plus books.
