Gen. Gage House

Title:
  • Gen. Gage House
Description:
  • "The Lindens" or "The Gen. Gage House" Location: Corner of Collins and Sylvan Streets looking towards Liberty Tree Mall. Alden W. Rider's great great grandfather, Joseph Rider owned this house in the late 1800s-early 1900s. A fine old mansion, it was taken down piece by piece about 1934 and re-erected in Washington, D.C. where it now stands (2011). During the Revolutionary War, it served as General Gage's headquarters for a time. A great loss to one of Danvers' great historic buildings but at least townsfolk can glimpse it in our nation's capital.
