Essex Park was named after the U.S.S. Essex, which was the ship commanded by Captain David Porter (for whom Porter County was named) in the "Battle of Valparaiso" during the War of 1812. "The Essex," a sister ship of the U.S.S. Constitution (Old Ironsides,) was built in Salem, Massachusetts and paid for by the public subscription from the citizens of Essex County. The names of the various streets in Essex Park are all towns in Essex County, Massachusetts.
A new board has been chosen at the Dec. 9th (2017) meeting. The names of the new board members can be accessed by going to the "HOA Board Member" pages.
