March 17: Hidden Beverly History Tour

Take a private tour of Hale Farm, which was originally the home of John Hale, first minister and a key figure in the Salem Witch Trials. The house, owned by the family until 1937, reflects the evolution of Beverly from farming community to summer vacation spot for the affluent.

Following the tour, Assoc. Director for Collections Abby Battis will take us through Historic Beverly’s collection of objects and documents that illustrate Beverly’s history over four centuries.

This tour can accommodate a maximum of 15 people.

Our thanks to Sue Goganian, Executive Director of Historic Beverly, and her colleagues for making this tour possible.
