Incorporated in 1639, the town of Essex consists of three villages: Essex, Centerbrook and Ivoryton. Settled around the Falls River and Connecticut River, Essex boasts scenic views, historic architecture, gracious tree-lined streets, eclectic shops, marinas, acclaimed restaurants and a remarkable history.

With three yacht clubs and numerous marinas, Essex allows boaters to dock their boats and walk to fabulous shopping and many outstanding restaurants. For fishing, the Connecticut River and Long Island Sound are fertile waters for a variety of species including shad, striped bass, blue fish and black fish. The Sound is also perfect for sailing and for power boaters, and provides an easy day trip to Long Island. The town is home to numerous civic groups, an active historical society and garden club. It is known for a variety of the parades that it hosts each year, including one on Groundhog Day and the Burning of the Ships Parade, which commemorates a British raid that took place in 1814 and left dozens of ships ablaze in the harbor.
