WEST HAVEN, Nov. 18, 2021 — Mayor Nancy R. Rossi and author Dan Shine signed copies of the new centennial book, “City of West Haven: Village to Town,” for West Haven history buffs at the city’s Main Library on Wednesday night, Nov. 17.

The $20 book, printed in partnership with GHP Media of West Haven, chronicles the stories and photos that shaped the community’s past 100 years. The information was sourced from the “Historian’s Corner” series written by Shine, one of the foremost authorities on West Haven history.

The 116-page historical work, which has black-and-white and full-color photos, was commissioned by the City of West Haven Centennial Celebration Committee to commemorate the community’s 1921 birth and its incorporation by the General Assembly as Connecticut’s youngest town, said Rossi, the committee’s honorary chairwoman.

The paperback book is also available for purchase while supplies last in the Department of Human Resources at City Hall, 355 Main St., or by calling Commissioner Beth A. Sabo at 203-937-3558.

Sabo, the committee’s chairwoman, said the book is the perfect gift for the holidays.
