The mission of the Danvers Historical Society is to interpret the rich history of Danvers through programs, exhibitions and publications to the widest possible audience; to collect artifacts and documents of historical significance to the community and to manage and care for them in accordance with professional museum standards; to operate and maintain a museum, library and historic sites and structures; and to contribute to the community by advocating its historical interests and cooperating where appropriate with other historical organizations.
The Danvers Historical Society manages several historic properties, including the Israel Putnam House, the Page house and Glen Magna farms. Museum collections are stored principally in Tapley Memorial Hall, which also serves as an exhibition and programming space. Archival collections are housed in the Danvers Archival Center in the local public library. The membership of the society stands at 323. A Board of Trustees composed of 9 community members governs the organization. There are 6 year-round paid staff. The Danvers Historical Society is a 501(c)3 educational nonprofit organization.
