A video presentation by Hubie Norton, Oct 5 2021 at Memorial Hall.


Chartered in 1763, Essex did not establish the first school district until 1796. It took 33 years for that first school district to appear, but the next 70 plus years witnessed a whirlwind of school district activity that reflected the growth dynamics of Essex. Using maps and student population information this presentation will show how the school districts evolved through the mid-19th century. - Here is the recorded video of his informative presentation.
