Atwater, Edward E.
History of Colonial New Haven
. Boston: Rand, Avery & Company, 1881
This book is the ultimate coverage of New Haven history. Without Mr. Atwater's meticulous recall of New Hew Haven, our history would be lost.
Calder, Isabel Macbeth.
The New Haven Colony.

Ms. Calder is recommended by many historians and educators and lends great insight to the world before 1880.
Hoadly, Charles J.
New Haven Colonial Records: 1638 - 1649
. Hartford: Case, Lockwood, and Company, 1857
These volumes open the eyes of anyone who seeks to discover life in colonial New Haven. These records may be for the educator to read, but they are something to share with the children you teach to and everyone who has an interest in New Haven.
Hoadly, Charles J.

Same as above. What a treasure we have locally.
Vision in the Sky: New Haven's Early Years 1638 - 1783
. Hamden: Linnet Books, 1989
In my view, the best account of New Haven history that can be told and appreciated at all levels. I hope that all New Haven school children read this.
Leeney, Robert J.
Elms, Arms, & Ivy: New Haven in the Twentieth Century
. Montgomery: Community Communications, 2000
This is a new book that was written by Robert J. Leeney. Since his book, Mr. Leeney,
member of the New Haven Register news staff for 52 years, has written at least two articles of which I have read: "The day redcoats took the town", and "A local bow to freedom's birth." Every Sunday I look forward to more historical gems.
