Ansonia CT Town Travel Business Information

New Haven Connecticut Region MapWelcome to Ansonia, Connecticut. The city of Ansonia, settled in 1840 and named in honor of the merchant and philanthropist Anson Greene Phelps (1781-1853), was originally a part of the township of Derby. The state of Connecticut chartered Ansonia as a borough in 1864 and as a township in 1889; in 1893 Ansonia incorporated as a city, consolidating with the coterminous town.

In August of 1955 a devastating flood, caused by rain from Hurricane Diane, destroyed many houses and businesses. After the fire, Main Street businesses began to close and move elsewhere. The Latex Foam Company was one of the larger employers with 250 people working for them. A fire in May 2001 destroyed the building, and a Target store opened up where the factory once stood. In recent years several new stores and shops have come into downtown Ansonia, reviving the once-dead Main Street.

The city is home to the headquarters of the Farrel Corporation, producing plastics and rubber processing equipment.  Also, you will find the Ansonia Copper & Brass facilities along the banks of the Naugatuck River. Other important landmarks include the many Victorian and Queen Anne houses. The distinguished Ansonia Opera House, which is the oldest opera house in Connecticut, built in 1870.
