New Haven

New Haven is a quaint and historic town located on the Missouri River, in the heart of Missouri’s wine region. Beautiful river vistas, historic architecture, wineries and festivals can be found in this charming Missouri community. Downtown is located adjacent to the river with a large city park, river walk and visitor center which showcases the rich local heritage. Recent rehabilitations of historic mercantile buildings have attracted nationally renowned artists to the newly created Riverfront Arts District. The public spaces are well-maintained and often used for festivals, including the very successful Downtown New Haven Fire Festival.

Selected in the fall of 2009 as a DREAM community, New Haven is ready to embark on a downtown planning process. Based on recent and past efforts to enhance the downtown, local leadership will provide the energy and vision to establish Downtown New Haven as a thriving commercial and entertainment center on the Missouri River.
