You can check the town history book, A history of New Haven in Vermont 1761-1983 for more information.
New Haven has been a farming community for many years, but recent times have caused many farms to be divided up and sold. We are grateful for the ones that remain and continue to help provide the scenic vistas we all enjoy.
The New Haven River runs through the town and is a wonderful place to catch trout. Many years ago the river was used to help the industries located along it. Both New Haven Mills and Brooksville were located along the river.
New Haven Mills, located at the junction of River Road, East Street and Munger Street, used to be a thriving community with a store, factories and a church. Everything but the church was destroyed by fire. The church continues to be open for one month in the summer and is sometimes used for weddings and community gatherings.
'"Brooksville" in the Town of New Haven is located on Dog Team Road. It used to house the Brooks Edge Tool Business which made axes; the broad axe was the most sought after tool they made. This business was in existence for fifty years. Now there is a sign to commemorate its previous existence. The decline of Brooksville and the New Haven Mills as industrial communities came in the nineteenth and early twentieth century. The village then became the town center and remains so today.
