- Venue Description:
The New Haven Town Green is one of New England's oldest, completed in 1638. Portions of the Green were used as a cemetery until the 1820s when the Green became overcrowded and headstones were moved to the new Grove Street Cemetery; however, bodies were not dug up and between 5,000 to 10,000 still remain. The 16-acre public park is a popular site for concerts and picnics, and an overall excellent gathering place for locals and tourists alike. The Green is also location to a memorial to the Amistad captives. Along the Green there are three churches built in the 1810s: Center Church, United Church and Trinity Church.
