Originally settled in 1765 by William Gilliland, the early 19th century saw Essex, New York grow into a bustling maritime port. Handsome residential and commercial buildings married popular architectural styles with local construction materials. Once the railroad arrived and time passed by the town ceased expansion and many of the old buildings were re-purposed and saved instead of replaced with new construction, which contributed to the preservation of much historic architecture. In the early 20th century Essex became popular as a tourist destination for seasonal visitors drawn by the leisurely pace and abundant natural resources.
Listed on the United States National Register of Historic Places in 1975, the Essex Village Historic District immerses residents and visitors alike in the rich heritage and soothing rhythms of pre-Civil War days.
