An 1875 birds-eye view of Danbury, CT, drawn by the famous O. H. Bailey Co. of Boston. Library of Congress stamp is visible in lower right corner. Known as "The Hat City", the city once made 25% of the nations hats. Several hat companies are referenced on the map, as well as hat box companies and others that served the industry.

Also referenced on the map are the 1st and 2nd Congregational Churches, along with the Baptist Church, among others. It is interesting to note that Thomas Jefferson used the expression "Separation of Church and State" in a letter written to the Danbury Baptist Association, in response to their concerns about persecution by the Danbury Congregationalists in 1802. This was the first known instance of the expression. The letter is now on display at the Unitarian-Universalist Congregation of Danbury. Complete reference list below.
