Derby, Connecticut

Derby, the smallest city in the state of Connecticut, covers 5.3 square miles with an estimated population of 12,080. Derby was officially recognized as a town in 1675 and incorporated as a city in 1893. Considered to be part of the Naugatuck River Valley, Derby is located in southwest Connecticut at the junction of the Housatonic and Naugatuck Rivers.

Early on, Derby's industrial growth came primarily from agriculture and commerce with the West Indies. By the late 1800's, the rivers provided power and transportation attracting a series of large manufactures to the town. Among the manufactures of Derby were pianos and organs, heavy machinery, woollen goods, pins, keys, combs, typewriters, corsets, hosiery, and guns and ammunition. Currently, Derby's major employers include Griffin Hospital, Birmingham Health Center, Derby Cellular Products and George Hegyi Industries.

Asbestos exposure in the workplace has been an issue in Derby over the years. Use of asbestos containing products was common in the early to late 1900's particularly in the manufacturing industry. Workers may be at risk to develop certain asbestos diseases including mesothelioma (a terminal cancer). For those diagnosed with mesothelioma in Derby, we provide a list of mesothelioma doctors and cancer clinics in and around the Derby area.
