A History of Bridgeport

Bridgeport is Connecticut’s most populous city. The first recorded settlement dates back to 1659, when it was known as Newfield and then Stratfield. Bridgeport was incorporated in 1821 and became a city in 1836.

Early settlers to the area relied on fishing and farming. Around the mid-19th century, settlers took advantage of Bridgeport's strategic location on Black Rock Harbor, engaging in shipbuilding and whaling endeavors. This change encouraged local settlers to shift from agriculture to manufacturing and mercantile pursuits.

Once the railroad opened in 1840, Bridgeport experienced rapid growth as an industrial center, producing everything from sewing machines and tools to carriages and ammunition. This industrial growth continued, and by the 1930s, Bridgeport had almost 500 manufacturing firms.
