Reflecting on Danvers History Through Interior Design

For all my readers living on the Northshore of Boston....

The Danvers Historical Society is sponsoring a design show featuring several of the area's very talented and creative interior designers and artists. Tapley Memorial Hall, 13 Page Street in Danvers, will come alive with rooms from the past and present with a nod to the history and artistry born in Danvers. Some vignettes will be displaying furniture from the Historical Society's own collection. The main event will go from July 11th through August 1st. The public will have the opportunity to view the room vignettes, tour the gardens of Glen Magna Farms, listen to an historical lecture, and meet the designers at a High Tea! The Historical Lecture, Lunch and Garden Tour is July 16th at 11:00 am at Glen Magna Farms, Ingersoll St., Danvers. "Meet The Designers" High Tea is July 21st at 4:00pm, also at Glen Magna Farms.

The Designers have been working hard setting up their vignettes. Come on out and make a day of it! If you can't attend one of the events, stop by to see the vignettes at Tapley Memorial Hall, then stroll down the main street of Danvers for some shopping or a bite of lunch.

Below are some pictures of my vignette "in progress". Finishing touches are next week! My vignette is entitled "Lulu's Potting Shed", in honor of Louise Thoron Endicott who spent many summers enjoying the beauty and gardens of Glen Magna Farms.

For tickets, dates and times, please contact the Danvers Historical Society Office: or 978-777-1666. Proceeds benefit the preservation mission of the Danvers Historical Society.

  1. I am looking forward to seeing how you, as well as the other designers that are participating in the event, transform Tapley Hall into your own unique interpretations... it sounds like a delightful way to bring the history of Danvers to life through interior design! From the sneak peek that you have shared here, you are off to a great start... can't
    wait to see the finished space! Katherine
