WEST HAVEN, July 28, 2021 — (Pictured): Mayor Nancy R. Rossi and author Dan Shine reveal the cover of West Haven’s forthcoming centennial book, “City of West Haven: Village to Town,” at City Hall on Wednesday, July 28.
The new book, due in August, will chronicle the stories and photos that shaped West Haven’s past 100 years.
The content was sourced from the “Historian’s Corner” series written by Shine, one of the foremost authorities on West Haven history. The cover was photographed by James Holt and designed by Toni Perry.
Rossi, the honorary chairwoman of the City of West Haven Centennial Celebration Committee, said the book was commissioned by the committee to commemorate West Haven’s 1921 birth and its incorporation by the General Assembly as Connecticut’s youngest town.
The committee will announce more details soon.
