"New Haven is situated on the Missouri Pacific Railway, thirteen miles above Washington. In the early annals of the county it was known as Miller's Landing, named from Phillip Miller, one of the early settlers in the county. The name New Haven was applied to it when it was laid out as a town, in 1856, at the suggestion of William O. Ming. New Haven was incorporated July 12, 1881.

It is located at Section 36, Twp. 45 N, R. 3 W, on Highways C, E & 100." ~ History of Franklin Co., 1888. Goodspeed, pp. 330, 331 and Gazetteer of Missouri, 1874, Campbell, p. 204

"Established in 1858, and named for a town in New England, New Haven was one of the communities along the Missouri River, which came into being with the projection of the Pacific Railroad across the state from St. Louis to Kansas City. A gala day in New Haven's early history was September 20, 1865, when the Pacific Railroad operated its first passenger train from Kansas City to St. Louis in the then astounding time of about 18 hours. There was a monster celebration in New Haven that day, with the Silver Cornet Band and the mayor and city officials and most of the residents gathered at the station to see the train..." ~ The Empire that Missouri Pacific Serves, Missouri-Pacific Railway Publication, p. 237
