Welcome to New Haven!

Kanela Ribbon Cutting

Welcome to New Haven! We are so happy to have you here. We are a small city of a little over 16,000 residents and we have a long history in transportation and community growth. We pride ourselves in how we invest in our community through numerous events throughout the year, ribbon cuttings, holiday giveaways, and so much more.

A Little History About Us

New Haven was platted by Henry Burgess and was incorporated as a town under Indiana law in 1866. It became incorporated as a city in 1963. Several homes built by the Burgess family remain in New Haven. A Burgess home on Summit Street is the oldest brick structure in Jefferson Township. Green built a large frame Greek Revival house on the hill above what is now Central Lutheran School. Another Burgess structure remains at the corner of Summit and Eben Streets. Our city has been shaped significantly by transportation. It was located along the Wabash and Erie Canal (the Gronauer Lock of the canal was unearthed during construction of Interstate 469 in the late 1980s, and is now on display at the Indiana State Museum in Indianapolis). Later, the city was served by the Wabash and Nickel Plate Railroads. Norfolk Southern Railway maintains a significant operation in New Haven today!
