VETERANS' SQUARES

The Town of Danvers held a special town meeting on August 27, 1928 to submit the names for Naming Public Squares in Danvers. These Public Squares commemorate Danvers officers and soldiers who died serving the United States originally during World War I but was amended to include all wars.

The Town of Danvers Archivist, Richard Trask, provided these historical articles referencing the creation of the Town of Danvers Veterans' Squares. He also provided photographs of the Veterans for which the Squares were named. This historical information resides in the Danvers Archival Center located at the Peabody Institute Library in Danvers.
