New Haven Green Historic District

Bounded by Chapel, College, Elm, and Church Sts., New Haven, Connecticut


Street View 


New Haven Green is significant as the setting for three churches erected between 1812 and 1816, remarkable both for individual architectural merit and as an outstanding urban ensemble of the 19th century. Center Church and United Church (fine examples of the Federal Style) and Trinity Church (one of the first large Gothic Revival structures in America) stand on the east side of the Green. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, December 30, 1970
