Peabody Institute Library, Danvers

Though just 17 miles north of Boston, the town of Danvers, 13.5 square mile area and population of 25,000, still retains much of the hominess and architectural heritage of old New England. There are still over a dozen houses in Danvers dating from the 17th century, many associated with the witchcraft tragedy of 1692. In 1752, Danvers became independent from Salem, and soon witnessed the growth of various neighborhood villages, each having its era of prominence.
