Gen. Gage House

Title:

Gen. Gage House

Date:

ca 1930

Description:

"The Lindens" or "The Gen. Gage House"
Location: Corner of Collins and Sylvan Streets looking towards Liberty Tree Mall.

Alden W. Rider's great great grandfather, Joseph Rider owned this house in the late 1800s-early 1900s. A fine old mansion, it was taken down piece by piece about 1934 and re-erected in Washington, D.C. where it now stands (2011).

During the Revolutionary War, it served as General Gage's headquarters for a time.

A great loss to one of Danvers' great historic buildings but at least townsfolk can glimpse it in our nation's capital.
