Village of New Haven
New Haven's rich history is part of what makes it a lovely, modern place to live today. First settled by French explorers in 1835, the town became a frequent visiting place for the likes of Thomas Edison and, later, famous actors such as Mickey Rooney.
From its humble beginnings (its original population was a mere 413 people, and the town's only major feature was its railroad station) it has grown to a population of nearly 5,000. Residents enjoy a friendly school district and fun community park, in addition to many other assets. A number of subdivisions were built there in the early 2000s, and a boom of industry on Gratiot has made New Haven a very attractive place to be, for a day or a lifetime.
