New Haven Area Heritage Association, Inc.
Welcome to New Haven Area Heritage Association's Website. Pictured below are some of the oldest buildings in New Haven that are still standing.
Thought to be one of the oldest standing buildings in New Haven, this building was built around 1863 as a Blacksmith Shop owned by Balzer Federspiel. The Urbine family used it for their living quarters for about 60 years and ran a cobbler shop out of their home. Their daughter, Hilda married Charles Stuckey and it became a very prominent Archery shop for many years. It has housed many industries including New Haven Golf. The building still stands at 328 Broadway and now houses Computer CracksJacks, a secretarial and website business.
Blackwell's grocery was a long standing business in downtown New Haven. It now houses Ruhl's Furniture and features three floors of modern, beautiful furniture.
