Bridgeport History

Bridgeport was chartered as a city in 1836 and was originally part of the township Stratford. Bridgeport early years were marked by fishing and farming but the city’s location on the scenic shores of Long Island Sound fostered a boom in shipbuilding and whaling in the mid-19th century, especially after the opening of a railroad to the city in 1840. As the city rapidly industrialized in the late-19th century it became a manufacturing center. Bridgeport has had many famous visitors, in 1860 Abraham Lincoln spoke to a crowd at the old Bridgeport City Hall, Martin Luther King Jr. spoke at the Klein Auditorium and President George W. Bush at McLevy hall in 2006. The city is marked by its attachment to its famous resident, circus-promoter and once mayor P.T. Barnum who built three houses in the city, and housed his circus in town during winters. The city was home to the Frisbie Pie Company and therefore it has been argued that Bridgeport is the birthplace of the frisbee. The city is also home to the first Subway Restaurant, opened in the North End section of the city in 1965.
