In the mid-19th century, Bridgeport has seen a rapid growth because of whaling and shipbuilding, but as the 20th century was approaching its development advanced thanks to industrialization, labor movements, and the emergence of the railroad. As many other New England cities, the late 20th century brought about deindustrialization and a diminishing population.
