The little town of New Haven is located on the Missouri River in Franklin County, Missouri. It is off of Highway 100 with a population just over 2,000.
The small downtown area consists of a few blocks of unique businesses along the river.
Many of these attract tourists like the Astral Glass Studio and Gallery, the Pickney Bend Distillery, the New Day Mercantile, and the North Star Coffee House.
There is also a small museum downtown for New Haven’s most famous former resident, mountain man John Colter.
John Colter was a member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition and aside from Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, he is probably the best known.
