Imagine a place where the small-town charm of New England meets suburban convenience in perfect balance, where every street corner tells a story, and every path leads to an adventure. Welcome to Essex and Essex Junction, Vermont — areas rich in history and bustling with modern vibrancy.

A Journey Through Time

Our journey through Essex begins over a century ago when it evolved into a major railroad junction in the 1850s, linking six rail lines and becoming a hub of transportation and trade. This historic junction set the stage for a community deeply rooted in connectivity and progress.

The opening of Maple Street Park in 1953, followed by significant upgrades in 2000, including new pools and a recreation building, established a foundation for a community-focused lifestyle that thrives on innovation and leisure.

Essex Junction is famously home to the Champlain Valley Expo, one of Vermont's largest gathering spaces that draws people from all corners for celebrations of agricultural food and music. This venue, nestled by the scenic Winooski River, symbolizes the community spirit and cultural richness of the area.

Local spots like the Brownell Library, Maple Street Park, and the scenic trails around the Indian Brook Reservoir offer residents and visitors alike a taste of Essex's commitment to community and leisure. The Essex Experience, a hub of local shops, galleries, breweries, and restaurants, provides a perfect backdrop for a day spent enjoying the local flavor and artisanal crafts.

A Hub of Innovation and Growth

The economic landscape of Essex is significantly shaped by major employers like GlobalFoundries, which stands as a testament to the area's contribution to global technology and innovation. This presence, along with the proximity to the University of Vermont Medical Centre, underscores the area's role as a beacon of employment and advanced healthcare.
