Main Street faces the water, demonstrating that New Haven was a town founded on the river. There are still some old wood frame houses in between the street and the river. I assume they are some of the oldest buildings in town, but I do not know.
There was a ferry at one point across the river, but as an informational sign notes, the two banks are now isolated from each other now that riverboats no longer ply the Missouri.
New Haven is investing in major street improvements, which is smart as there is a fair amount of tourist trade in town.
I do not know how much these grain silos are being used nowadays, along with what seem to be storage tanks.
