Brief History

East Haven was chartered on October 22, 1790 by the Vermont Legislature.   The town contains the village of Hartwellville. 

One of several parcels granted to a group headed by Timothy Andrews who operated an inn in his home town of East Haven, Connecticut, after which he named this Vermont town. The records show that his holdings were purely speculative, and that Andrews had no intention of ever settling here. Ironically, he died in Vermont, while on a trip to inspect his holdings.

The population at the 2010 U.S. Census was 290. [1]  [2]
