Elias Hasket Derby summerhouse.. Built in 1793…designed by Samuel McIntire..removed in 1901 to Glen Magna .. The Endicott family estate in Danvers … Where it remains the focal point of the formal garden areas..
Built in 1801, this “is virtually a duplicate of McIntire’s Old South Church in Salem.” This church was not, however, built by McIntire. So this is a PLAGIARIST CHURCH. It is, according to the 1937 book, nonetheless “valuable…as an indication of the style of the Salem genius in church design.”
When I first flew to NYC last October, I never realized that it would start and spark an interest in collecting American Girls. I have always loved dolls and over the years, I have bought a couple of Porcelain dolls that I never got to display. I don’t think I would have been able to accumulate so much without my loving family whom supported me, my future DH and my sheer determination to get into American Girl!

One of the things I am most thankful for was my opportunity to attend the University of Virginia and the McIntire School of Commerce for my undergrad education (more on that another time).
To show my thanks, I was excited to participate in the McIntireONE campaign that kicked off this week. For any donation by a young alum to the comm school given in the month of March, a donor will contribute an additional $100.
So, if you’re a recent graduate of the comm school, take five minutes to give five dollars (or more!):
Elias Hasket Derby elevation drawing …house built in the 1790s..after a design by both Charles Bullfinch and Samuel McIntire…the house was impossible to resell even during the height of Salems asian trading period and the Derby family gave the land on which it sat to the town of Salem in the 1810s for the purpose of a location for the new Town Hall which was built in 1819…
