Bird's-eye view of Naugatuck, Connecticut 1906.

An historic map print reproduction of Naugatuck, CT, published by Hughes & Bailey in 1906. Like many nearby towns in the Naugatuck Valley, Naugatuck was initially a farming community in western Connecticut, settled in 1701. The Industrial Revolution found Naugatuck ready to transform itself into a thriving mill town. Charles Goodyear, who was the first American to vulcanize rubber, lived in Naugatuck as a young man. Rubber manufacturing became a major focus of industry in Naugatuck, with companies like Goodyear Metallic Rubber Shoe Company, founded by Henry Goodyear, the brother of Charles Goodyear. This map shows two factories in operation for the Goodyear Metallic Rubber Shoe Co. in 1906. Nine rubber manufacturers were consolidated in 1892 as the United States Rubber Company, later to become Uniroyal Inc. (1962).

The map also shows an illustration of the Naugatuck Chemical Company, which had only recently been formed by the U. S. Rubber Co., in 1904. Developing chemical processes to reclaim rubber, the Naugatuck Chemical Company soon became a leader in the American chemical industry.
