The purpose of the Society’s museum collection is to discover, collect and preserve objects that illustrate the history of Danvers, particularly its history and development and to foster an appreciation of the many and varied activities of its residents. The collections include household furnishings, clothing, militaria, books and ephemera that carry out this purpose.
The Society welcomes gifts that further our knowledge of Danvers, in particular the life, customs and styles of its residents. The Society also collects objects that enrich the interpretation of its historic structures. Please contact our office if interested in donating an object.
Currently, the Society is in the process of presenting select pieces from the collections on their website to help make the collections more accessible to the public.
