Founded 375 years ago, the neighborhood of Black Rock has tied together the communities of Fairfield and Bridgeport, while retaining its unique personality and sense of place. Through the ages of sail, steam, and rail, Black Rock has served as a beacon of ingenuity, strength, and comfort for its residents and visitors alike. Celebrate 375 years of Black Rock’s rich community history and heritage through rare artifacts and photographs – and look towards its future – in this anniversary exhibition.
