History[edit]

A military camp called Camp Haven was named after the community. It was located in Haven on 160 acres (0.65 km2) of rented land. The camp operated from 1949 until November 16, 1959. as an anti-aircraft testing range. The land was sold to Wisconsin Power and Light for a planned nuclear power plant called Haven Nuclear Power Plant. After plans never materialized, the Whistling Straits golf course was built on the site.[3]
