The lovely town of Essex is located midway between New York and Boston, and is conveniently situated just a short commute from Hartford, the state’s capitol. Essex is a welcoming, vibrant place to live, work and play, and residents enjoy its history, scenic beauty, natural resources and gracious real estate. The three villages comprising Essex – Ivoryton, Centerbrook and Essex Village – were built around the rushing Falls River, which flows into the Connecticut River a short distance from Long Island Sound.
Boasting a circa 1892 town hall, the community is rich in diverse architecture, from Ivoryton’s factory homes to beautifully restored Federals, elegant Victorians, cozy capes, and historic factories and churches.
Essex residents take pride in the town’s past as they remain committed to preserving its future. The community boasts a variety of historical, educational and cultural opportunities, attractions and organizations, such as the Sailing Masters of 1812, whose members don traditional garb of Navy midshipmen. Other popular attractions include the Ivoryton Playhouse, Essex Steam Train, Connecticut Audubon Ecotravel, Connecticut River Museum and Bushy Hill Nature Center.
The community also hosts highly anticipated events, much to the delight of residents and visitors. Essex Ed is a popular Groundhog Day attraction, and good humor surrounds the town’s popular Loser’s Day Parade, marking the 1814 raid by British marines who burned 29 ships in Essex harbor.

Last but not least, we all frequently have a good laugh in our office. Humor is indeed soul food, and we feast on it with gusto.
