The Ward-Heitmann House is the oldest surviving structure in West Haven, Connecticut and may be the oldest within the original boundaries of New Haven Colony. Written records indicate that a house belonging to Ebenezer Clark of New Haven was on the site in 1725, although the house may have been built as early as 1684. When British troops landed at Savin Rock in July 1779, the house was already at least 50 years old. (This excerpt taken from the Ward-Heitmann House Museum website)
