New Haven Industrial Heritage Trails: Ghost Town

presented with Yale School of Architecture

New Haven Industrial Heritage Trails invites you to explore a set of interpretive proposals for buildings and landscapes that reflect New Haven’s history as an industrial city - a city of factories, coal-fired power plants, railroads, and trolleys. The built legacy of this history is distributed across our city in different ways. Some buildings have been adapted and reused. Others remain dormant. Some are threatened by neglect. And in some cases, the buildings themselves are gone but have left traces of “ghosted” networks. Created by students at the Yale School of Architecture, our intention is to provoke public consideration of these places-what they have meant in the past and what they might mean for the future of New Haven-and to propose creative ways to mark these diverse and sometimes dissonant narratives.
