Ivoryton is one of three villages in Essex, Connecticut in Middlesex County. Ivoryton Historic District, the historic district in the village, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on April 15, 2014
Ivoryton has the dubious distinction of having a virtual monopoly on all ivory production in the United States from 1860-1938. As the manufacturing of ivory is long gone, the town would like to take a large role, and use this event as a catalyst in the anti ivory, anti poaching effort.
