The city of Ansonia, located in New Haven County on the Naugatuck River, is in the lower Naugatuck Valley region. Though its development as a village center started in the 1600s, it was not until 1864 that it was incorporated as a town, and in 1893 reincorporated as a city. Also referred to as the “Copper City,” Ansonia produced copper, brass, rubber, and plastics, among other manufacturing industries. It was the home of the well-known Ansonia Clock Company and the birthplace of Revolutionary War Colonel David Humphreys. – (Source: Connecticuthistory.org)
