The William D. Bishop Cottage Development Historic District, also known as the Cottage Park Historic District, is a 3.1 acres (1.3 ha) historic district in Bridgeport, Connecticut that was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. The district most prominently includes 35 1-1/2 story wood frame cottages with Carpenter Gothic styling, developed in 1880 and 1881 by the Bishop Realty Company as a planned worker housing area. The houses were probably designed by Palliser & Palliser, as were a small handful of adjacent properties also included in the district. This area was one of the first planned worker housing tracts in the city.[1][2]
