Chapter Four: 1883: New Haven

Virtual Event: August 19th, 4pm

New Haven buzzed with activity. Four trains a day passed through, bringing passengers and freight, and taking products like flour and fruit trees to market in other towns. Steamboats and ferries stopped with passengers from St. Louis, as well as shoppers and schoolchildren from southern Warren County. The boatyards built bigger and bigger steamboats to compete with the railroads, but it was a losing battle.

Guest Storyteller, Brian “Fox” Ellis: Internationally acclaimed author, storyteller, historian, and naturalist.
