Halfway between Boston and New Hampshire, Danvers is a Boston commuter city with a population of 26,762. Danvers was originally settled as Salem Village and petitioned the King of England for a town charter , but the petition was returned with the message “The King unwilling.” When Danvers later incorporated, it immortalized the phrase on its town seal. Danvers also had a role in the Salem Witch Trials, and maintains the house of one convicted “witch,” Rebecca Nurse, as a historic landmark. Danvers is additionally noted as the home of the Danvers State Hospital, an architecturally interesting landmark now being converted into apartment buildings. The home court for Danvers residents is Salem District Court in Salem.
