Bassickville Historic District is a historic district in Bridgeport, Connecticut that was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.[1] It then included 38 contributing buildings.

It consists of most of the area of a "generally well-preserved" housing development that was built during 1883-1885. The development was planned and developed by Edmund C. Bassick, an entrepreneur who moved to Bridgeport from Chicago in 1880. The mostly one family wood-framed "Stick-style" cottages were built as rental units and contained details such as bay windows and gabled roofs.[2]
