Here are members of the Danvers State Memorial Committee in the larger of the two cemeteries at Danvers State Hospital in the spring of 2001. See the joy on our faces! We had planted flowers earlier in the fall and they had survived the winter to bloom in the spring. This was a sign of renewal for us. We have worked hard to research the names of those buried and to match those names with numbers. By the late spring of 2002 we anticipate that we will have individual markers with names to replace over 350 numbered markers. We will have a wall of remembrance listing all of the remaining names that we cannot match to numbered markers. Through fundraising we hope to purchase benches, shrubs and perennials. Victory is close at hand!
