Welcome to East Haven
Welcome to East Haven

The area, now known as East Haven, was obtained by Puritan settlers Reverend John Davenport and Theophilus Eaton on November 29, 1638 as part of the purchase of New Haven, Connecticut from Sachem Momauguin of the local Quinnipiack tribe.

The Quinnipiacks -- also spelled Quinnipiac -- were a Native American tribe of the Algonquin family who inhabited south-central Connecticut in the area around what is now the present-day city of New Haven and New Haven harbor. ...


In 1639 Thomas Gregson, petitioned for the purchase of Solitary Cove, later called Morris Cove. This was granted on August 5, 1644 and was the last piece of land that made up the original town of East Haven. The original town boundaries were from the harbor and Quinnipiac River on the west to the Branford and North Branford town line on the east. The southern boundary is the Long Island Sound to the North Haven town line in the north.


East Farms, as it was originally called, was considered a parish of the New Haven Colony. Settlers settled into Morris Cove and what is now the “center” of East Haven in 1639. The first Connecticut ironworks, the third in New England, was founded on the shores of Furnace Pond in 1655. Originally called Lonotononket (Great Pond) by the Quinnipiac Indians, today it’s called Lake Saltonstall. With Branford and North Branford having had settlers since 1643, people from the New Haven Colony started to settle the Foxon section in 1683.


In 1665, the New Haven Colony was merged with the Connecticut Colony (Hartford) under a charter from King Charles II. With the success of the ironwork mill, the area became known as Iron Works Village. In 1675 Iron Works Village petitioned the Connecticut Colony to become a separate town. Negotiations with New Haven regarding land never succeeded. This eventually led to the relinquishing of village privileges in 1685. Efforts were again made in 1703 and the Connecticut Colony granted the town petition for township in May 1707 and the name was changed from Iron Works Village to East Haven. With some outstanding land issues with New Haven and a minor feud with Governor Gordon Saltonstall resulted in the rescinding of the township status and the area was once again a parish of New Haven [1] Nickname: The Elm City Location in Connecticut Coordinates: ) Counties New Haven County Mayor John DeStefano, Jr. ...

Geology

During the Paleozoic Era, 450 to 250 million years ago), several plates collided to form the giant super continent called Pangaea. East Haven was located in the middle of this collision and the results can be seen today with the schists, gneisses and granites which are exposed.


When Pangaea was broken up, during the Triassic and Jurassic Periods, volcanic activity occurred, depositing basalt or trap rock. Earthquakes can still be felt in the area. In January 2001 the area was rocked by an earthquake originating in Madison, Connecticut. Madison is a town located in New Haven County, Connecticut, and it occupies a central location in the Connecticut Shoreline area. ...


It is estimated that Connecticut was covered by glaciers at least two times. The last glacial is estimated to be 1800 feet thick in the New Haven, Connecticut area. 22,000 years ago, the glacier moved south, eroding mountains and pushed through East Haven and depositing large amounts of glacier till to form Long Island. 14,000 years ago the glacier retreated and shaped the coastline, formed Long Island Sound and created Lake Saltonstall. It also deposited glacial till, soil, sand, rocks and boulders that the ice carried south from the north. This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...

The coast is primarily covered gneiss rock (including granite), schist and quartzite and is part of the coastal slope. The remaining sections are part of the Central Valley and are covered with clastic sedimentary rock (redbeds, conglomerate, sandstone, brownstone and shale). This soft surface has been resedimineted by a number of floods, making the soil soft and fertile and ideal for farm land.


Brownstone, a sedimentary rock erodes easily, was easily dug into by glaciers and carved out many lakes and valleys. The area surrounding Farms River and Lake Saltonstall on the East Haven and Branford boarder is an example of this. The brownstone that did not erode was used for building foundations and rock fences found throughout New England. . Also located in the northern section are deposits of basalt


Deposits of basalt (lava flow) can be found in the north and northeast sections of East Haven. Several quarries can be found in this area. Traprock (basalt) is turned into crushed stone. It is primarily used in construction and the in the bedding of roads. Sand and gravel from glacial till is the second most profitable quarried rock. They are used as fill, in concrete, leach fields or for road sand.


Animals and Plants

When Pangaea was broken up, East Haven had forests. Dinosaurs, reptiles and mammals roamed the area. Dinosaur track ways, like those found in Rocky Hill, Connecticut at the Dinosaur State Park were recently found at a construction site near Lake Saltonstall. The tracks were made by Eubrontes. Fossils of Triassic period reptile have been found in the area. Stegomus, was covered with armor plates and looked similar to an armadillo. Rocky Hill is a town located in Hartford County, Connecticut. ...
