Essex County Seal

Trible-Roane-Wright Home: This Georgian mansion was built on the corner of Duke and Water Lane about 1850 by Dr. Lawrence Roane. His son inherited it and sold it to Judge Thomas Croxton who in time sold it to Moore Wright, a prominent Town merchant. The exterior bricks are stuccoed and now painted white and the front and rear porches both have fluted columns. This 12-room home was restored in the 1950s and and became the private home of Mrs. W. Austin Trible. In 2000 the house was again restored by John Gwathlmey and converted to The Essex Inn, and in 2005 was bought by Mr. Cooke, who continued the business under the "Rivah, Romance, Revival" theme.
