Using Essex History

Primary sources and teaching resources from Essex County, MA

What is Using Essex History?

Using Essex History brings together teaching resources collected and produced between two past programs, Using Essex History (UEH) and Local In a National Context (LINCs), both of which sought to encourage the use of local history to illuminate larger national themes. The materials gathered here mostly consist of primary sources from the Essex National Heritage Area (Essex County, Massachusetts). There are also suggested resources for source analysis and further exploration of local primary sources.

Educators, students, and community members are encouraged to explore Using Essex History.
