Danvers from 1850 to 1899 (Massachusetts)
Images of America Series

by Richard B. Trask

Copyright 1996, Arcadia Publishing
128 pages, Softcover, 9.25"x6.5"

From the back cover:
In the mid-nineteenth century, the community of Danvers, Massachusetts, celebrated the 100th anniversary of its separation from Salem. Formerly known as Salem Village, Danvers had been the location in 1692 of an infamous witch hunt, and in the nineteenth century it still retained numerous historical ties to those early, traumatic times.

In this marvelous new photographic history, tile story of Danvers from 1850 to 1899 unfolds before our eyes through the medium of early American photography. Readers will gaze at the fresh, young faces of Danvers shoemakers and farmers turned soldiers, dressed in uniform and prepared to fight in the Civil War. The pocket villages of Danvers are revealed and illustrated both in images of structures forever lost and others now preserved as historic house museums. Also illustrated are many of the elegant estates occupied by such notables as poet John Greenleaf Whittier and Secretary of War William C. Endicott.

Mr. Richard B. Trask is the town archivist of Danvers; he is also an authority on the use of photographs in historical research and the author of several books and articles published on the history of his hometown. His affection for the area and knowledge of its past are evident in this significant new work.
