The State Harbor Commissioners for New Haven Harbor was established in 1872. The Board had responsibility for "the general care and supervision of new Haven harbor and its tide waters, and all of the flats and lands flowed thereby, in order to prevent and remove unauthorized enroachments and causes of every kind which are liable to interfere with the full navigation of said harbor, or in any way injure its channels, or cause any reduction of its tide waters."
These records consist solely of meeting minutes. They include the only records of decisions for structures and dredging between the years 1925 and 1957 and the hearing record for changes in 1959 to the U. S. harbor lines at Sandy Point, New Haven Harbor.
