Bridgeport is currently the most populous city in the state of Connecticut and is located on Long Island Sound. Currently the largest employers in Bridgeport are People’s Bank, St. Vincent’s Hospital, Bridgeport Hospital and the City of Bridgeport.


Bridgeport’s first settlement was made in 1659, however the city was not chartered until 1836. Bridgeport’s location on the deep Black Rock Harbor supported shipbuilding and whaling in the mid 19th century. Bridgeport’s advantageous geographic location encouraged the early settlers to shift from agrarian to mercantile and manufacturing pursuits. Industrialization started taking place in the mid-19th century. Famous factories included Wheeler & Wilson, a producer of sewing machines, and the Locomobile Company of America, builder of one of the premier automobiles of the time. By 1930, Bridgeport was a thriving industrial center with more than 500 factories. Industrialization and the presence of the railroad made Bridgeport an ideal manufacturing center producing Bridgeport milling machines, saddles, corsets, carriages, brass fittings, sewing machines, and ammunition.

While manufacturing has died out in Bridgeport in recent years, it has become an important retail location because of its seaport, railroad center, and proximity to interstates and highways. The recent renovation of the waterfront, the emergence of the Black Rock community, and low real estate prices have attracted some to Bridgeport but the high crime rate and lack of major companies has kept others away. One of the most recognizable symbols of Bridgeport is the Barnum Museum which was originally known as the Barnum Institute of Science and History. The Museum houses artifacts and information relating to its founder, P.T. Barnum, his businesses, including the “greatest show on earth,” and the history of Bridgeport, which he served as Mayor.

An active construction industry coupled with its manufacturing roots puts Bridgeport in a high-risk category for asbestos exposure. Workers in Bridgeport exposed to asbestos may be at risk to develop mesothelioma, a cancer caused by the inhalation of asbestos particles.
