Archive Closing Temporarily

Beginning Wednesday, March 6, 2019, the Danvers Archival Center will be closed for about three weeks for the installation of a new “green,” environmentally-friendly gas fire suppression system. We will attempt, however, to continue to answer Danvers citizen and their queries via email (, though many archival resources have been moved and are unavailable for research even by the Archivist. The Peabody Institute Library itself will remain open on its regular schedule. This work will greatly assist the preservation of our unique Danvers and Witchcraft collection, one of the finest, all encompassing, and varied collections of its kind in the United States.
