Three hundred years on the Green

On this date in 1716, the Yale Corporation voted to move the college—then known as the Collegiate School—from Saybrook to New Haven. The decision followed a bidding war among Connecticut towns in which New Haven emerged victorious after offering eight acres of land next to the Green and £2,000. Thanks for 300 wonderful years, New Haven!
