The Danvers State Hos

Originally opened in 1878, this 19th century psychiatric hospital has quite an illustrious past and has given Danvers a unique claim to fame beyond its colonial days. Previously known as the Danvers State Insane Asylum, it is rumored that the first pre-frontal lobotomy was performed here. By the late 1960s, the hospital ended up closing, but its remnants remain. Although the original buildings have undergone many renovations throughout the years since, today the old hospital is largely abandoned. Yet this castle on the hill remains a fascinating sight interesting piece of Danvers history.

The Oldest Living Fru

Planted sometime between 1632 and 1649 by John Endicott, a governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, the Endicott Pear Tree is thought to be the longest living cultivated fruit tree in North America. In fact, when Endicott planted the tree, he was probably also the first to cultivate fruit in Massachusetts Bay. Since then, this tree has continued to live on in Danvers' Endicott Park. Although it is now surrounded by a fence to protect it from vandals, residents of Danvers are still welcome to visit the tree and perhaps have a picnic under the shade of its branches.

Fun for All at the Fa

Above all else, Danvers is a town for families. It proves this each summer with their annual Family Festival that takes place in June. Activities abound throughout the city and include events such as live music downtown, hot air balloon rides at Endicott Park, and a fireworks extravaganza. There is also plenty of family activities, live music events, and contests, so make sure to check the festival calendar to know where to go. The Danvers Family Festival has been bringing people together for over 35 years, so you can be sure that you and your family will end up with a great time.
