Fort Wooster Park
New Haven, CT
After years of neglect, a one-time colonial battlefield is being reborn. Join us in rebuilding this historic treasure: to honor the past and embrace the future.
Fort Wooster Park, located on the East Shore of New Haven, was the site of a signal beacon that alerted the inhabitants of New Haven to the arrival of British forces in 1779. Long forgotten and fallen into abandonment, the Park is undergoing a remarkable transformation.
