West Haven Green, West Haven, Connecticut

West Haven, Connecticut is Latoya’s hometown with great childhood memories. This historic plot of land represents the colonial culture developed in New England. The Green was the scene of action during the Revolutionary War when Major General William Tryon led British forces in a brief invasion directed at nearby New Haven.

 Present day, the Green is an area where residents enjoy music festivals, parades, and other cultural activities.The area is now surrounded by several residential and commercial properties. Latoya’s dancing school was in the nearby vicinity.  As a dancing school student, she fondly remembers participating in parades and the unmistakable ring of the clock tower.

The Historic District of West Haven was settled in the 17th century as part of the “New Haven Colony”. This stretch of land contributes to religious, commercial, and residential development  — over the next three centuries and beyond.
