Welcome to Essex County Revolution 250!

Essex County Revolution 250 is an initiative begun by Essex Heritage and dozens of partner organizations across the region to raise awareness and highlight the diverse stories of Essex County, Massachusetts residents, free and unfree, during the American Revolutionary period. 

This website was developed as a way to begin to share resources, events, history, and projects that relate to the American Revolutionary era and Essex County’s role in that transformative period.

As we work with our partners to develop ideas for educational and commemorative initiatives, we will share them on this website. To receive updates from Essex Heritage about Rev250, please subscribe to our newsletter.

Essex County Rev250 is a partner of Massachusetts Revolution 250.
