Galligan (R); Steve Gates (D); Wally Irish (R); Sarah L. Kissmann (D) Manchester was settled by colonists around 1672 as a farming community, although at the time it was known just as Orford Parish (the name that can be found on the memorial to the Revolutionary soldiers from the town).
The Pitkin Glassworks operated from 1783-1830 as the first successful glassworks in Connecticut.
Usually workers had the option of renting or purchasing with the help of company-financed loans.
Most early tenant residences were apparently single-family dwellings, but subsequently the company built two-, three-, and four-family units as well as boarding houses for both male and female workers.
Description The Cheney Brothers Historic District encompasses approximately 175 acres and includes the 18th-century Cheney Family Homestead, several 19th-century mansions built by the Cheney Brothers and their descendants, some two dozen mill buildings dating from as early as 1886, several schools and churches either built by the Cheneys or situated on land donated by them, and about 210 individual and multifamily mill houses either constructed or purchased by the Cheney Brothers Manufacturing Company between 18 for use by its mill operatives.
Collectively these form what Harper's Weekly editor Henry Loomis Nelson described in 1890 as "in many respects..most attractive mill village in the country." Nelson was impressed especially with the community's park-like surroundings; absence of fences, pigsties, chicken coops, and litter; and rows of neat, well-kept workers' residences which represented "every phase of the spirit of rural architecture." If today he could return to South Manchester, which is part of the town of Manchester, probably he would be pleased that relatively few physical changes have occurred in the Cheney Brothers Historic District.
Eventually, Manchester became an ideal industrial community. The population density was 2,008.2 people per square mile (775.4/km²).
The mills, houses of the owners, and homes of the workers are now part of the Cheney Brothers Historic District, a National Historic Landmark. There were 24,256 housing units at an average density of 889.9 per square mile (343.6/km²).
