New Haven, CT
These doors are the entrance to the New Haven City Hall. About 400 years ago the area where New Haven is located was the home of a small tribe of Native Americans, the Quinnipiack, who built their villages around the harbor. On April 24, 1638, a company of five-hundred English Puritans, sailed into the harbor. The Quinnipiacks who were much distressed by raiding bands from surrounding areas agreed to sell the tribe's land to the Puritans. In return, the settlers pledged to protect the natives and to allow them the use of the lands on the east side of the harbor. This is when New Haven was founded. Today New Haven is the second-largest city in Connecticut and has about 124000 inhabitants. (Photo was taken by Bill Owens.)
