Center Church On the Green - a beautiful and historic church, situated in the heart of the city center of New Haven.

The Eli Whitney Museum and Workshop was established in 1979 as a not-for-profit historic and educational organization, and offers unique educational programs for students, teachers and families, teaching experiments that are the roots of design and invention.

The Shore Line Trolley Museum has been an important part of the community since its incorporation in 1945 as the Branford Electric Railway Association. A visit to the museum is a multi-sensory voyage into the past, from the moanful growl of the motors, to the smell of the electric arc, to the feel of rattan seats and varnished hardwood detailing.
