Announcing the 2017 Danvers Ornament!
Each year the Danvers Historical Society selects a Christmas ornament which symbolizes an important part of Danvers history. This year we have chosen a crayon in honor of the  Standard Crayon Factory.   Read the full story here .

For years the large Crayola Crayons billboard attached to the side of the main office on Maple Street was a familiar fixture in downtown Danvers, and local kids during the post-World War period into the 60s often were lucky to obtain samples and broken crayons from the company.

This building, on Maple Street, built in the 1880s, was a roller skating rink. In the 1890s, it became the Drill Shed for Company K, and was where the troops met before deployment to the Spanish American War.  Share your stories of Danvers here.
