About East Haven
Originally called East Farms, the town of East Haven was settled in 1638 as a part of New Haven. After decades of struggling and petitioning, it got incorporated as a separate town in 1785. In the late 19th century, the town got smaller because most of the land was sold to New Haven. East Haven is mostly known for its Shore Line Trolley Museum, which operates Branford Electric Railway, the oldest continuously operated trolley line in America. East Haven is located near the ocean, so there are some cozy, admirable beaches. Also, this town is famous for its beautiful, authentic architecture, which is attractive for tourists.
