Danvers Archival Center on Danvers State Hospital

Danvers Archival Center Website
Many years ago (more than I care to count), when I first learned about Danvers State Hospital, there weren’t really that many good web pages about it. One of those few quality pages was hosted at danverslibrary.org, the website of the Danvers Archival Center at the Peabody Institute Library. It didn’t have that much information though, and only a few small images. I would still visit the page every so often to look at the pictures and see if there was anything new added, but there never was. I gave up checking on it several years ago.

The other day I discovered the page has been completely overhauled with lots of new text and some really breathtaking photographs, including one of the most beautiful exterior images of Danvers I’ve ever seen. Go take a look, you won’t be disappointed. (Make sure you scroll down to the last major section of the page to see the exterior picture I’m talking about.)

    Good to see it updated after quite sometime. Don’t forget to mention Richard Trask. That man has put so much work into the Danvers State Hospital research and preservation. If it weren’t for him, there probably would be nothing left, although he wanted most of it preserved from demolition.
