Egremont

Egremont

North and South Egremont are two beautiful and distinct villages that share a common government. They were settled by the Dutch in 1722 and incorporated in 1775 and have worked hard since the 1930s to maintain the historic gentility and quiet country atmosphere. The town is a perfect refuge for city dwellers as well as its fortunate full time population.
