Town Description:

Ansonia with a population of 18,554 is located in New Haven County along the Naugatuck River. The city, settled in 1840 and named in honor of the merchant and philanthropist Anson Green Phelps (1781-1853), was originally a part of the township of Derby; it was chartered as a borough in 1864 and as a city in 1893, when the township of Ansonia, which had been incorporated in 1889, and the city were consolidated.

The city has extensive manufacturers of heavy machinery, electric supplies, brass and copper products, and silk goods. Together with Derby, Shelton, and Seymour, Ansonia is part of one of the most important industrial regions in the state. The highly successful Ansonia Clock Company started manufacturing here in 1851, before moving to Brooklyn, New York, in 1878. The original name of the company, however, was retained.

Landmarks in Ansonia include the Farrel Company and the American Copper and Brass factories situated along the banks of the Naugatuck River (which bisects the city), the Ansonia Public Library, the Valley YMCA, the Ansonia Armory and many other historic buildings.
