Living in Danvers, MA

Once part of neighboring Salem, Danvers was known as Salem Village during the 17th century. It earned its independence from the city in 1752 and was made a township in 1757. The Revolutionary War spurred industrial growth in the area - Danversport became a center for shipping and shipbuilding, and was home to many tidal mills, while brick manufacturing and leather tanning brought many new workers to the town. In the 1830s, the Tapleyville district became famous for its woven carpets, and shoemaking emerged as a leading industry in Putnamville and Danvers Highlands. In 1889, Danvers became the first town in Massachusetts to establish municipal lighting.

In 2010, the town was populated by 26,493 people, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

The Danvers Public Schools district is comprised of five elementary schools, one middle school and one high school. The town is also home to St. John's Preparatory School, a private day school for boys that boasts a 175-acre campus and a student body of approximately 1,200 students.

In terms of further education, North Shore Community College (NSCC) has a Danvers campus.
