Explanation.

My name is Andrue Coombes, and I live in the State of Massachusetts. There are 298 towns and 53 cities in Massachusetts. It's my goal to visit each and every one of these places, take a picture of myself with the "Entering ___" sign, and interact with both the social and physical geography of the area. In this blog, I will write a story about my visit to each place, and things I did there, as well as post pictures and other things of interest. Hopefully I will complete this within the next few years, and everyone can notice how beautiful things can be in their own state if they just get out of and experience them! Good luck on all of your travels!

DANVERS!



Oh Danvers! I was told to come here many times by many awesome people, and on this adventure, we spent the least amount of time here! Danvers is a town with a lot of history. Danvers was very involved in the Salem Witch Trials of the early 1690s, and the house of executed with Rebecca Nurse still stands to this day, and can be visited! Danvers is also known for its legendary "Danvers Lunatic Asylum" which I have been DYING to check out. It's supposedly built on the site of the house of John Hathorne, a judge during the Salem Witch Trials, and great-great-grandfather of Nathaniel Hawthorne, author of the House of the Seven Gables and the Scarlet Letter. I only passed through this time, but I plan on a full on visit to this town in the near future.
