Danvers is a unique town in southern Essex County with an interesting history and plenty of living space. The town was originally called Salem Village when it was first attempted in 1636, but King Charles I refused to grant a charter. Nonetheless, it played a major role in the 1692 witch trials that spread from Salem Town across the area.
The community was renamed Danvers after one of its most prominent settlers in 1752 and was formally founded five years later. Its nickname, Oniontown, is based on the Danvers onion, which was first grown in the mid 18th century. Today, it's a suburban center with a population of 26,500 and plenty of available homes to consider.
Interstate 95, U.S. Highway 1 and Route 128 run right through the town, so access to both Boston and the New Hampshire shore is fairly easy by car. Although there are no T stations in town, there are a couple of bus routes that go through the northern communities.
A great place to relax is at Endicott Park just off of Forest Street. There are all kinds of enjoyable amenities from hiking trails to a large community garden, and several other parks have enjoyable amenities too. On the south side, the Endicott Pear Tree can be found, and at nearly four centuries old, it's the oldest fruit tree in America.
Apart from individual listings, a good place to find a leasing property is at Endicott Green on Newbury Street. The 258 units come with either one or two bedrooms with simple and open floor plans. Every space has large closets that fit anyone's wardrobe and have plenty of empty spaces for you to design as you want. The community also has an outdoor pool, a playground for kids, and a large clubhouse with plenty of activities.
