Ivoryton, which is
actually part of Essex, located in Middlesex County, took its name
from the ivory industry set up here by the Comstock family, who
imported tusks to be shaped into covers for piano and organ keys.
Today people come to Ivoryton for the Ivoryton Playhouse, which
stages excellent productions of dramatic and music works.
