History[edit]

Green Haven began as a day-trip destination for residents of Baltimore City, directly north of Pasadena. Green Haven was just a short boat ride from the city.

Green Haven developed into a small community in the early 20th century, with a district town center. With the rise of suburbs, Green Haven became increasingly residential in nature, with local shops closing under pressure from nearby plazas and strip malls.

Today, Green Haven has lost much of its unique character because of the loss of its old style "summer home" charm, and the loss of its fire department that was complemented by green and white fire equipment, however, it is still the largest single neighborhood within Pasadena. Green Haven is home to one of Pasadena's two high schools, Northeast High.
