The former East Haven High School was constructed as a New Deal project with federal Public Works Administration (P.W.A.) funds. The P.W.A. supplied a $185,153 grant for the project, whose total cost was $427,035. Construction occurred between March and December 1936.
No longer used for educational purposes, East Haven is converting the facility into a 70-unit senior housing facility.
