Rebecca Nurse Commemoration

July 19, 2017 will mark the 325th anniversary of the execution of Rebecca Nurse. As stewards for many decades of her family property, The Danvers Alarm List Company would greatly appreciate your presence in paying respects to this very strong woman. Where many gave into fear, she held steadfast to her innocence, and at a dark time was able to hold compassion for her accusers.

Join us for a short reception, commemoration ceremony, and concluding with a procession to the Nurse Family Cemetery where it is believed that Rebecca was secretly laid to rest.
