History

New Haven was one of the first planned cities in the United States. It was founded by English Puritans in 1638, and after just one year, eight streets were laid out in a symmetrical grid. The central block is New Haven Green, a 16-acre square at the center of downtown. In 1716, New Haven was established as a center of learning when the Collegiate School relocated there. Shortly after the school received a large donation, it was renamed Yale. In 1784, New Haven was incorporated as a city, and in the late 18th century, a Yale graduate developed the cotton gin and set up an armaments factory bringing significant economic benefits to the region. New Haven soon became a center of manufacturing with clock-making and brass hardware sectors, and in 1836 the revolver was invented by Samuel Colt. After the Civil War, the population continued to grow and doubled by the start of the 20th century, mainly due to immigration from Italy. Roughly half of New Haven’s population today is of Italian-American descent. In the past 20 years New Haven’s downtown area has been revitalized with restaurants, small retail stores and nightlife. There has also been an influx of new apartments and condominiums in New Haven Green.
