Essex, CT ::: "Best Small Town in America"

OK, so I believe it was given that title by a journalist in 1998, but it's still very true!! It's a beautiful little town that I have wonderful memories of as a kid, and also have a fondness for today.

Down at the Connecticut River...

A church downtown

A couple shots from within the steam train yard

And lastly, Essex used to be home to the E.E. Dickinson Company factory which made Witch Hazel... sadly, the plant was relocated in the early 90s.

And my pathetic attempts at trying to capture some funky sun flare... I need some lessons. =)
