As of May 1st, HiveBrand has moved its office to 354 Pequot Avenue Suite 106, located in the historic Jelliff Building in Southport, Connecticut. The C.O. Jelliff Manufacturing Corporation was organized in 1880 and still produces woven wire goods in the dedicated mill in the present facility on Pequot Avenue. The juxtaposition of the old mill and new businesses merge seamlessly.
We could not be more thrilled with our new space, as many of you know Southport is an exceptional community. Covering only about 3 ½ square miles it may be small in size but big in heart and charm. Possessing some of the most magnificent historic homes in New England. Its history goes back more than 360 years, and residents have worked hard to maintain the charm and preserve its history.
Southport became a leading coastal port on Long Island Sound, its ships carrying produce and goods back and forth to New York City. A measure of Southport’s success is the fact that throughout the 1800s, it possessed the only two banks in town. However, competition from steamboats and the railroad took its toll on prosperity. Resourceful shippers teamed with local farmers and business people to keep the port going; the Southport onion, a high-quality onion, was developed and grown on Fairfield’s hills and shipped in Southport market boats. Today, much of the old village area is part of a historic town district, first established in 1967, where buildings from three centuries are protected for future generations.
