The local historic map was obtained from the Ansonia Historic District. The district includes two intersections, including the intersection of the main road and the city boundary, as described in the District Decree. It also includes a lot bordering the city limits, and also two lots across the street, one on the corner of State and Main Streets and one on State Street.
The property is located on a sprawling former industrial site, north of Liberty Street and adjacent to SHW Casting Co. and south of State Street. A carpet upholstery manufacturer that moved from Bridgeport to Ansonia in 2017 is in the process of acquiring the property to expand its manufacturing.
Elm Street is also in the historic district of the city and was part of the original Derby settlement of 1654. The land along the river was handed over to the factory, both operational and unusable, while the woodland north of Elm Street and south of State Street belonged to the American Brass Company. In the late 19th century, the cemeteries where the militia was trained were buried and the place was rededicated as a cemetery.
The economic boom that began after World War II led to higher living standards and allowed the area to become more prosperous than it was today, predominantly middle class, once was. The housing market in Ansonia has improved dramatically in recent decades, driven by the growth of the city's industrial base and the construction of new residential and commercial buildings.
The new settlers cleared land for agriculture and took the opportunity to develop the area as a trading port that once competed with the port of New Haven. The construction of new facilities also signalled the beginning of a new era of industrial development in Ansonia and its neighbouring towns.
Brass buttons were particularly popular, laying the foundation for the brass boom in the Naugatucktal. Unlike the former mill owners at Torrington, Anaconda and its vast international holdings brought a very different culture to brass production.
In the decades after the flood and suburbanisation, Ansonia's Main Street fell into disrepair, and retailers moved to the nearby town of Torrington and its far-from-ending but still-vibrant shopping district.
But the company was not content to live in rented accommodation and in 1899 bought the old church building on the corner of Main Street and Prospect Street, built a new church building and built its own building, Ansonia High School. When the original high school in Prospect Street (now a city park) was burned down, a newer one was built on the site of the former church. The main street today has a number of buildings that have been abandoned and which contain a variety of shops, restaurants, hotels and other shops as well as some churches. In the late 1990s, when the new Anonia Middle School was built, this former middle school became the "Ansonian Middle School."
The other farm the Bassett family bought was a dairy farm producing milk from Jersey cows and other dairy cows. Ten years later Phelps founded the Ansonia Brass Battery Company in Ansonsia, which proved to be a huge success. The company grew steadily throughout the early 20th century, and at its peak, its workers produced some of the best brass products made in the United States.
In 1864 Ansonia was recognized by the state as the district of Derby and amended in 1871 to grant the full privileges of the municipality. In 1884, the General Assembly of the state declared separation and formed an independent city known as Ansonsia, with its own town hall, police department and fire department.
This comparatively small area is steeped in history and was the place where the growth of the larger, populous area really began. At the end of the 20th century, the main street was livened up by a Polish delicatessen, a café, a grocery store and a number of restaurants.
